Yes, Schremp needs to work on a lot of things with his game.

He needs to go to KHL for a year or two. Larger rinks and skill-oriented game style can benefit him.

He won't be claimed, he was passed on by most teams in the entry draft and he had potential back then. Maybe he'll realize he needs to improve his game and not blame everyone else for his failure to stick in the NHL, after all 29 teams pass on him.

Officially a bust? Some where McTavish is grinning with a "I told you" face

wtf are you talking about? Where or when did he blame his failure on anyone but himself? You have little clue as to what you're talking about.

I'm sure everyone has made a claim about one player or another that turned out to be completely wrong so that would be a pretty silly thing to do.

As always I hope Robbie has success in his next opportunity, wherever it may be (only not against the Oilers in the SCF four years from now).

Really?

1) The Leafs have Tlusty (who is also a former 1st rndr) who is probably a better player than Schremp and will not likely make the big club. They also have Bozak, Hanson, and others who are likely better than Schremp and will likely also not make the big club. This should tell you that there is no room on the Leafs for Schremp since they don't have the space for their own (better) prospects.

2) The Leafs have a good amount of offence as it is, and they'll have more when Kessel starts playing in mid-November. Both Wilson and Burke want players who can play in all sorts of situations, which is something that Schremp ismply cannot do. Therefore, he is useless to the Leafs.

3) The fact that Schremp is American has no basis for discussion here. Schremp is clearly NOT an NHL-caliber player which IS the point of this discussion. Until he is able to "put it all together", or retires from playing hockey altogether, Rob Schremp will remain a career AHL'er. Brian Burke doesn't give a damn what a player's mationality is; all he cares about is if the player in question has all of the necessary skills and character traits that he looks for when he's building his team. It is painfully clear that Rob Schremp is lacking when it comes to Burke's "player criteria".

4) I fail to see how having Burke claiming Schremp off waivers constitutes being an "act of revenge" against the Oilers (Kevin Lowe) for the Penner offer-sheet business as this is a totally different situation.

So, to sum up, there is absolutely no reason for the Leafs to claim Schremp off waivers.

EDIT: The Leafs also don't really have the cap-space for Schremp either. What little they have left needs to be saved for injury call-up purposes during the season, not wasting it on players they don't need nor want.

Is your team offensively inept? Does it have a lousy powerplay? Not expecting much aside from opportunistic offence? Do we have a player for you!

I'm betting he gets picked up. Give him sheltered minutes with defensively responsible linemates and ample powerplay time, he'll get you 40-50 points.

No, this doesn't surprise me. Yes, he will be picked up, probably not by Burke though.

I'd like to see the Pens grab him up, but only if he takes a two-way deal and for a very low price.

If you pick someone up on waivers, you get the contract that he is signed to.

He just recently said he wasn't given a fair chance by Craig MacTavish.

"I don't know if it was personal or not. Who knows? It's up to Craig to say. Obviously there was something he didn't like in me, so that's why I spent the last three years in the minors. That's just how it goes. I didn't have that much time to get to know him, it's not like we're buddies or anything. I was there for four years for a month in training camp. You don't really build with a coach in a month, so I don't know him that well. I've had a few dinners with him after getting sent down last year. I don't know if it's personality-wise -- I just think it was more he didn't like what he saw in my game," Schremp said.

http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...with_edmonton/

Read that entire article and there is plenty of whining against Craig MacTavish.

That article clearly says to me he believed that he should have been on the team and put the blame on Craig MacTavish. That bit about he didn't like my game is b.s., every other thing there says he thinks he didn't make it because Craig MacTavish treated him unfairly.

Before telling someone else that he has no clue about what he is talking make sure you know what you are talking about.

We should go dig up quotes from Avs fans who thought Gilbert for Salo was a good trade...

Everything is clearer in hindsight.

He was one of our best forwards last year, no one ever claimed Penner was an allstar?

I have read it, maybe you haven't? The only mention from him of MacTavish is the quote you posted and possibly a few sentences at the top regarding a clean slate, though that appears to be him hoping Quinn doesn't/didn't base his initial opinion on what went on with MacTavish. Where is the rest of this "whining"? Schremp is also answering the reporter's question about MacTavish's rant. Why you are surprised or appalled that he talked about the MacT situation is beyond me.

MacTavish didn't like him and/or his game, everyone knows that. But at no point does Schremp say or imply he should have been in the NHL.

Also, I like how you deleted the part of that quote where Schremp says his play in the AHL sucked last season and that was the reason he was never recalled after his intial callup. Anything to help your argument, I guess.

Couple that with weak skating and you have a career minor leaguer.
Sometimes it takes time to learn, that being said i think team like Colorado should pick him up. They are going to tank the upcoming season anyways so might aswell give Schremp a roster spot for full season and see what he can do.

Dude Bozak is going down because we have to many NHL forwards, there is no place for a player like Schremp on the team

Weird how a guy with so much talent and skill has never been able to crack the NHL even as a third or fourth liner. But maybe that's just the problem, maybe Edmonton had wanted him to be a top 6 guy all these years and he is just not cut out to fit that role. Something is definitely missing from his game, whether it be work ethic, heart or just all around grit to go with the skill.

It's too bad that his time is finally up in Edmonton but after five tough years battling there, maybe it's time for a fresh start for him and see if he can revive things and prove himself. Wouldn't be opposed to seeing Ottawa giving him a shot but likely won't happen.

He'd prob thrive on a team like Atlanta, much like one Ron Peverly.

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.
You're bringing up reading comprehension? Really?

Sigh... again, this is exactly what I mean. If you focus too hard on deeking "real purrrrty", you're going to miss what has actually happened. You're ignoring the fact that his skating has improved tremendously since he was drafted, for starters. You even mention it as a critical area that could have been improved, when it's improved about as much as could ever be expected. Obviously it's not enough, but just as obvious is the fact that it has nothing to do with "them thurrr shootouts".

Likely because his "trick shots" (of which I've seen I think 2 in exhibition games) have nothing to do with him as a player. It's a label that doesn't apply.

How exactly is he an NHLer with this offense and these "trick shots"?
