Rob Schremp season so far

Schremp seem to turning things around and begin to show flash of is skills with 6 goals and 5 assist in 16 games. Last game he play 19 minutes with 6 shots. I haven't see him play this year. How doe's he look ??? do you thing Schremp can develop into a 1st line player or just a 2nd line PP specialist

I don't see him as a first line player...doesn't create enough on a consistent basis.

The biggest problem for him is that he doesn't play defense. If he could at least be average in the defensive end I think he could be a solid 2nd line center. But he is 24, and needs to show a lot of improvement. I see him as a 60 point player in the NHL, but 60 points isn't enough to compensate for being a 1-dimensional player.

He def needs to improve defensively but I like the skill set he brings. He's only 24 and has only played 67 games in the NHL so he still has a lot to learn.

He was the hottest islander last season before he got hurt so this is the second solid scoring streak hes been on in his short time here. I really think he can pan out to be a strong second line center.

While Schremp definitely has his shortcomings, it can't be ignored that he's put up ppg at a better clip than anyone else on the team. When you combine his 11 points in the 16 games he's played this year with the 20 points he put up in his final 26 games last year before going down with the injury, that gives him 31 points in his last 42 games.

He's popular with his teammates and probably the most fan friendly player on the team, but the fact that he can't play anywhere but center is the problem. Bailey is significantly better at center than wing and he needs to play there our 2nd line. We can't afford to say goodbye to a talent like Schremp but, unless he adds some defense, I'm just not sure where he fits over the long haul.

Has some skill and creativity but it is not high end enough to overcome other deficiencies. Shremp is not good defensively - or just lazy at it - and tends to float and skate around in circles. Not physical and gets knocked off puck very easily. While only 24, he still should have shown some other core skills by this time. He was waiver fodder for a reason. I believe his best chance of success is at wing with a physical center than putting him in the middle.

He may be a top 6 forward on this team but that is more of a reflection of the talent level of the Islanders rather than an attribute of the quality of his play. He is too easy to play against and I'm sure the opposition loves to line up against him.

The kid has been very good in the offensive zone the last couple of weeks. Very consistent and his compete level seems to be higher. He has been one of the bright spots 5 on 5. He still needs a lot of work in the defensive zone to get more minutes though. He knows this as he admitted as much in his interview in yesterday's pregame. i hope he gets better. He has a great skill set offensively.

Screw his offensive instinct and lack of defense...did you see his last goal celebration?! Now that's what puts people in their seats!

Can't wait to see what he'll do when he scores an OT goal...

I like Schremp but as pointed out, he is a very limited player at this point.
Schremp is most effective on offense when on the power play or odd man advantage when he has the extra time and space to use his skills. Defensively he is well below acceptable with his stick checking, waiving at players going by him, and poor positioning (which is about being dedicated to play defense). His lack of physical strength holds him back in puck battles for possession.
I don't know why Gordon always insisted that Schremp would be a center or nothing. I too would like to see him tried on a wing. Defensive responsibilities of a center seem too much for him.

He has skill and busts his balls. Unfortunately his speed, while quick and darty, keeps him from moving the puck through the nuetral zone. Right now thats his biggest weakness. Defensively he's fine. He's not Mike Peca, but he plays within the system.

Going forward it can go either way. If he continues to get better like he has no reason to cast him aside. I think his future is at wing though. Not for defensive reasons but his neutral zone carries just aren't good enough consistently for a center.

I'm concerned about him. He's creating offense, putting up points and is a -1 on the season (best forward) but he's lost his abillity to give frank and funny pregames and postgames. He needs to regroup, focus and give 110% in those interviews.

Who cares? He's a fringe AHL/NHL player on one of the worst teams in the history of pro hockey.

Not even worth talking about.

He is a pretty good player and entertaining to watch at times but if the Isles ever become a good team he wont be part of it.

I would say he is a step above players like Parenteau and Grabner.

I'll disagree.

A kid with immense talent on offense gets sent packing, develops a stronger work ethic and now lacks a 2 way game....now if we got a real NHL coach and stable roster worth 1980's price admission, I say Schremp turns into a solid second line contributor. He's not good defensively but better than Czerkawski. He has speed. He has hands. He now has the work ethic.

What he lacks is good coaching and the talent to play with.

I'll even say if he develops an even stronger work ethic under the right imaginary NHL head coach and Bailey is well refined under the imaginary real NHL coach we get and we get a solid two way player, like Nino (I hope) then we have a good lil 2nd line.

But the talent is dependent on a good, no nonsense NHL coach.

Just like my retirement is based on a wealthy 95 year old billionaire marrying me.

Rather see him on wing, but he has been good lately. He should be given a shot on Tavares' wing over PAP.

Rob Schremp is overrated like 2/3rd of prospects... They need to create trade packages in the deadline and in the off season to improve the team with some professional players. Garth is hording these players like gold.. WHY??? NHL Prospects are a dime a dozen!!!

Rob Schremp is nothing special!!!

Once upon a time names like Chara, Vertseeg, Byufuglien, Ryan Malone, where fringe players on barely ECHL calibre rosters.

I highly doubt he becomes an elite player, but its not out of the question for him to establish himself as a perfectly fine secondary weapon. The problem for the Isles is that he is used as our go to offensive guy cause he's the only player still producing in this muck.

Special or not the guy can put up points. 39 points in 67 career games is pretty good considering the bulk of those games have come on offensively challenged Islander teams. I dont think anyone is saying hes something special.

Not a fan of Shremp but I agree that if he is here it is worth trying him on Tavares' wing. I would like to see them also put Martin on the other side and let him mix it up a bit and free up a little space. I cannot stand seeng PAP on the ice - let alone on the first line.
