Kessel also cost 2 1sts and a 2nd, Schremp would be free.

At worst, he gets waived.

At best, he finds his niche as a setup man the Leafs aren't exactly teeming with.

I think the habs should try to pick him up. put him on the third line and having scoring on the first 3 lines for sure. 4th line would even have production overall that would be a pretty sick line up for fowards.

What exactly is Schremp going to do on a 3rd line with Moen and Lapierre?

I see no room for him in our top6. Grabovski,Poni,Hagman,Kulemin,Stalberg,Blake Are all much better players than Schremp.

I still don't think Schremp would be a bad fit with either Nashville (give them some solid power play punch, maybe catch lightning in a bottle on the top 6 if it works out), Pittsburgh (I know our power play is solid but it could be worth it to try playing him there or playing him with Malkin for a few games here or there on the cheap and see if it works out), or honestly Toronto (I know he doesn't fit well in their system but he could work out becuase they could use a solid playmaker who can make things happen offensively). It would be cheap for these teams to try it and take a shot. All have top 6 openings and could use a cheap guy up there.

be a playmaker role dish to Lapierre and Moen and he can put some pucks in the net, for some reason alot of you guys except oiler fans seem to think the guy doesn't know what scoring a goal is, people what would he bring to our team and stuff?, he is a player that justs needs a chance to play and it doesn't hurt if he goes to a contending team either. I think he would play fine on the 3rd line thats why i put him there because I didn't find he fit on the first 2 lines and he would still get ice time which he wasn't in edmonton and get some points on the board.

Schremp isn't dedicated enough all-around to play a meaningful minutes in the big leagues, but has a very limited, eye-popping set of skills that are better entertainment than they are effective in game situations.

I can see why you're so vehemently opposed to the Globetrotters reference.

There is no way Nashville will make a claim for Schremp due to his inconsistent work ethic and questionable mental makeup.

Trotz was speaking to a coaching clinic yesterday after the morning skate and talked at length about the importance of a strong mental makeup, a solid and consistent work ethic, and a genuine sense of pride in working in a team environment is when making decisions on players for the Predators. Both he and Peterson (who spoke after Trotz) also mentioned the philosophy that says that, "a team with a strong work ethic, but only average talent will always beat a team with a high skill level, but little work ethic."

Lastly, Trotz mentioned that he says what's needed to be said, when it is needed to be said, regardless of the player and that occasionally he crosses the line, but he said he knows he can do it because of the makeup of the team and the players knowing that he genuinely cares about them both as players and people. He said that he's gotten some players really upset at him during Hockey Canada camps due to their unfamiliarity with him when he says something that "no one has ever told them before."

From everything I've heard and read about Schremp, he wouldn't last in Nashville and would only be a stumbling block to our homegrown youngsters moving through the system and battling for roster spots.

And everyone else should dig up all those millions of other posts that say that one prospect is better than the other to show them that they were wrong in the end. We could create a new message board dedicated to that. But of course that would be stupid because prospect predictions are not science and most (but apparently not all) of the posters on this board recognize that.

Nothing. Would be nice for Montréal to get him, but just look at that guy's 4th line. Max Pac and D'ags. Clear evidence the guy doesn't have the slightest idea as to what he's talking about.

He should be claimed, but I don't think he will be.

Based on the moves GM's have made this summer, it seems like they're very concerned about the cap, contracts and roster spots. Schremp won't do anything as a bottom six forward, his only use is as a top six forward.

That being said, I could see Burke claiming him because:

1) He's a former 1st round pick
2) Leafs could use more offense
3) He's American
4) He's an Oiler (and I suspect Burke still wants revenge for the Penner offer sheet)

Not saying that I totally disagree that he could eventually be a quality player for your powerplay.... it's just very very odd. The legacy that he created with that stacked London Knights team has followed him.
Well stated. I concur.

He's had Oilers fans rapt from day 1, urging that he get the chance to prove that he can take the next step. And clearly many fans from elsewhere have been watching as he toiled away. Much of this has to do with his freakish skills in puck-handling and the team he played for in junior. These two factors appear to have had him labelled as better than he actually is. Not the first time.

Interestingly enough, I don't know that this is as true this year as it was in the past. Watching him live this September at Rexall, he's had more jump and explosion to his step from a stand still than in earlier years. And while he still isn't interested in hitting anyone, he is liable to get a little dirty in the corners.

Did you leave your reading comprehension in the same place as your sense of humor? The key point was that he didn't do enough to mitigate his flaws but you seem to have glossed over that. His skating, his horrid release from the point...those are two critical areas that could have been improved. He was never going to be a Selke winner nor does he have to be, but his foot speed isn't good enough and he isn't even that much of an asset on the powerplay because pro goalies see his slapper coming from a mile away. But he sure could deek real purrrty like in them thurrr shootouts.

I'm sure he'd be a 100 pt player by now were he groomed by the likes of a Burke or Holland. Er... not.

The kid entered the fray with a chip on his shoulder believing that his junior numbers would carry him through. He never showed an interest in learning defensive concepts. His skating has been suspect from the start - in fact, it's only of late when working WITH the Oilers in the skating department, that he's become more well-rounded as a player.

He's had his chances. Can't blame it all on KLowe and MacT. Had a clean slate this season and simply didn't produce. He's ruined himself.

One could say they ruined his confidence but in the end he's just not good enough at the NHL level, he's weak along the boards, gets bumped off the puck way too easily and doesn't even know there's four corners you can go into to get a puck. Couple that with weak skating and you have a career minor leaguer.

Needless to say, I'm growing tired of the Schremp saga. Let there be an ending.
