Sure, Springfield sucked but you had guys like Devan Dubnyk who were able to rise above the mediocrity and prove their worth. Schremp didn't. And now under a new regime, he's been waived. I used to be a pretty big Schremp defender, but I think the truth is pretty apparent now.
This is exactly what I mean. The reason he didn't make the team isn't because he was "practicing that stupid lacrosse crap".

We don't think that's all he is. In fact, a lot of past Harlem Globetrotters could have easily held spots on NBA benches, but chose not to. They found more fun in doing fun stuff like that. Schremp could hold onto a spot in the minors right now or maybe a bench winger on a team like the Avs or Nashville, but maybe he'd be a better fit in a Globetrotter like setting.

It's not a knock on his skills, it's actually a compliment in a way. Schremp just isn't a good enough skater right now to be able to translate his skills to the NHL. He has probably top 10 hand-eye coordination of anyone in the hockey world, but he can't make it translate. It has nothign to do wiht ignorance, just a quick jab at a highly skilled player who hasn't been able to translate to the NHL.

We all knew it was coming.

I honestly hope someone claims him. He's been given enough chances with the Oilers.

He's slow.....he has skill but we have no room in our top six for a guy like Scremp. He could be a good pick-up for a team like Colorado or the Islanders. But Toronto is just a bad fit imo.

It's not that he wasn't given a shot, I just think he's the wrong fit for the Oilers at this point. The Oilers just have too many players that have similar skill sets and size (POS, Schremp, Comrie, Nilsson, Gagner, Cogs, Eberle, Hemsky, etc.). Obviously some are better than others, but all are smaller, not overly physical, offense first players. The players that the Oilers kept over Robbie are either better than him, stronger than him, or faster than him, or a combination of the 3.

Wouldn't surprise me either way (claimed or not).

Hopefully he does get a shot somewhere else.

I know he's a bad fit but, i just really like him still, and i'm sure burke and wilson could make him to become a lot more of an all round player and make him useable on the leafs teams.

If a team can't commit powerplay time to Rob Schremp, he isn't going to help them. I don't know enough about each NHL team's needs to really say who'd be smart to go for him, but if your team could use a LH powerplay specialist and has a good enough roster to shelter him at ES, he could be a decent pickup.

just a thought what if Pittsburgh picked him him and crosby together on the pk would be so absolutely ridiculous. I'm also not sure if they could or even want to put, him on the penguins team

I would definitely take a chance on him. Heck, Burke brought in guys like Bozak and Hanson, who have just played NCAA meanwhile Schremp lit up junior and was a ppg player in the AHL not too long ago. I would definitely give him a shot.

Chances Burke puts a claim in are slim to none. He doesn't fit our style of play at all.

yeah, last year was a disaster, but the year before last, he finished top 10 in the AHL in scoring.

You just get the feeling that this guy will never stick in the NHL.

And Kessel does?

Burke doesn't give a crap about the toughness or character or grit of his top 6 forwards as long as they can score. If Jason Allison has a ****ing chance with his team so does Rob Schremp.

Pittsburgh could try him as a 13th forward/2nd PP mainstay. Schremp as a setup man with Staal as the finisher could work quite nicely.

Just looking through his stats, it doesn't look TOO bad. How bad has he been in Edmonton?

Those 3 or 4 seconds is all Rob Schremp ever was and ever will be.

7 goals in 69 games for the Springfield Falcons... I won't be shocked if he goes unclaimed.

claiming him is really a low risk/high reward if he can pan out elsewhere. Whats the loss? a few bucks and a trip back to waivers if it doesnt pan out? Oh darn. I could see him on the island for sure.

He's nothing special, that's the problem.

If you're a good skater with some defense, you can stick.
If you're a decent skater with some offense, you can stick.

But when you're a crappy skater...

Kessel is younger than Schremp,has elite speed and also an elite shot. He's also a 21 year old 36 goal scorer. Comparing the two makes no sense at all.

I think you have to look at that team with a great big salt lick.

He didn't play with Ryan Potulny, and that was the only guy who did anything for Springfield. He was 7th in AHL scoring the previous year and had 3 points in 4 games in his call-up.

He just doesn't have the tools to play 5v5.

I should go dig up all those posts from Edmonton fans about how he would have a better career than Wolski and how he is more talented.
