    Lately in these boards it's all about Robbie Schremp... everybody says that he could be a superstar in the NHL and put up great numbers in the nhl! But yesterday I looked at the OHL stats 4
    Patrick O\'Sullivan Mississauga IceDogs 7 5 11 16
    Rob Schremp London Knights 9 8 7 15

    O'Sullivan as not better linemates than Schremp but he got 1 more points... and Pat has 2 games on Schremp!



    .....

    who is the better prospect O'sullivan or Schremp??

    I think Schremp has the slight advantage in "potential", but as strange as it might sound (considering the off-ice problems), I think O'Sullivan's a safer pick to be a regular in the league. Especially in Minnesota where he brings offense and will learn to play defense.

    Keep in mind that Pat is a year older, but then again I think Pat was better then Robbie when he was the same age, I just have no clue why he dropped all the way to 56th, I personally think he shoud've gone top 20 that year.

    Same reason as Schremp, the scouts/managers didn't have a good read on what was going on in his head.

    I dont know who I would rather have to be honest......hmmmm..

    Ya now I remember the off-ice problems he had, but when you grab that kind of talent 56th overall it's a big steal.

    Both are steals IMO...

    Very hard to say who's the best prospect. My vote would go for Shremph in a heart beat.

    But one thing is sure bothe can turn out to be super star and both could become carrer AHLer...

    I haven't seen Schremp yet this year, but if he follows O'Sullivan's lead over the next year or so in terms of rounding out his game (in areas like effort, consistency, and defense) then he'll be moving up in people's estimation similarly. O'Sullivan has come a long way in those areas. He was used in all situations and seemed to be on the ice for half the game against the Majors the other night. He was everywhere.

    In terms of comparing their team situations, it's true that O'Sullivan isn't surrounded by as much of a star-studded cast as Schremp is. But then, at the same time, Schremp is not looked at as "The Man" in London, and probably isn't going to get 30 minutes of ice time and be out for practically every minute of every powerplay, the way O'Sullivan is. So it goes both ways.

    Both are very comparable players. I'm going to be a homer and say Schremp, but O'Sullivan IMO is still going to be a heck of a player.

    What's more sad...? that Patrick (and his 2 sisters) had to deal with that man as their father, or that 30 NHL teams passed on him because of it?

    anyways, does it really matter which one is better...what matters is that those 2 will have USA dominating international hockey for the next 15 years haha

    What if a Meteor crashes into the earth killing millions of people? terrible things could happen, but chances arent good, so you can't worry about them! Besides if there is a Meteor heading to earth I'm sure Robbie would stop it with his awesomeness.

    Only way Schremp is a Bust is if Bust stands for:
    Beautiful
    Unbelievable
    Stickhandling
    Talent

    The first part is infinitely more sad.


    I consider both these guys to be long shots to be star players in the NHL. I hope they prove me wrong and become great NHLers. It's just that scouts do a damn fine job when it comes to the guys they scout so heavily. I just can't imagine so many teams passing on these guys (along with Hudler and Evseev) if they had a chance to be first liners. Schremp still went relatively high so if he'd be my choice.

    A questionable attitude might drop a guy 10 spots. But these guys all dropped 15-40 spots. Evseev, I believe had an injury prior to his draft. I haven't heard much about him since being drafted.

    I'll take O'Sullivan. I like his potential and his overall skillset much more.

    I'd say based on the strength of each draft, their draft positions are pretty comparable.

    IMO, O'Sullivan has the better chance to do some damage.

    Just wondering why would anyone be terrified of schremp reaching his full potential? Honestly, I hope he turns into Joe Sakic, I don't think he will, but entertaining hockey players are what every hockey fan wants, isn't it?

    Good one.. Both guys a big gamble and come blossom to be major steal

    I'd go with Schremp for overal habilities I believe that when the dust clear he'l;l be the last man standing :yo:

    30 teams on him not because of what his wretched father did, its because of Patricks (allegedly) wretched attitude, plus I am sure their are some issues surrounding his actual hockey playing abilities.

    I think O'Sullivan is the safer pick of the two because of how fast he is.
