    How Good Will Schremp Be...

    As An American Schremp Refuses To Play The Dumb Canadian...

    Does This Mean That Mactavish(a Coach Well Known For Having Almost No Intelligence) Will Screw Up This Talented Oilers Prospect Possibly Since Jari Kurri

    Pretty darn good

    The only dumb person is you, for saying something like that

    Mactavish has no intelligence? You know that how? Have you met the guy? How about talked to him?
    And you know he has no inteligence.

    Crawl back into your little hole.

    Haha yah that is so painful to read...

    Schremp is good possibly best since Tomato soup is Jari Kurri, though I expect Mactavish to change the lines possibly because Gretzky, not to mention clarifying Lotion...

    Being a non- english speaking citizen of Finland, I have no idea, what you mean by this. Could someone clarify this for me? Is he saying Jari Kurri wasn't successful?! Please God, someone tell me I'm wrong! :banghead:

    He's suggesting that Schremp is the most talented Oilers prospect since Kurri. That's a compliment.

    Is it fun being uninformed to such a degree where you can make laughable statements like that without instantly being so embarrassed you never return to the boards?

    I'm not a MacT fan - but he clearly knows more then 99.99999999999999999% of all fans that aren't involved (or weren't before) in the NHL or some level of high hockey (NCAA, OHL, WHL, TheQ, Elite/Super/Extra Leagues, etc).

    I don't think Schremp is the best prospect the Oilers have since Kurri...

    I think Schremp needs some work but he'll be good, just depends on where he goes with his talent and what he wants to do.

    High risk, high reward type of prospect.

    I also think that the guy that gave a 9C to Schremp is a bit too high on him and is overrating him a tad...

    He has a major attitude problem. ;)

    Oilers fans think he has the potential to be like Weight. Others who cite his non-existant 'attitude problems' are either Flamers or ill-informed.

    I don't think he has an attitude problem but like O'Sullivan, there was something to cause him to drop like he did. If he was like what everyone says he was...he would've been taken in the top 10, top 15 at least...

    Wow Kim Johnsson was the very last player taken in his draft. Draft position is very crucial at assessing player talent. For example: Because Jason Bonsignore was taken in front of Jeff O'Neill.... we should expect Bonsignore to break out any time now (I mean he was drafted ahead of Jeff) Aki Berg is an all-star because he was drafted 4th overall. Players draft position reflects their true talent. Even though it's been stated many time that Schremp is the most offensively talented player in the 2004 draft behind Ovechkin...he obviously will be a 4th liner in the ECHL at best because he was drafted in the 1st round but not in the top10-15. You HAVE to be drafted top 10 to 15 to be good. That's why Simon Gagne made team Canada and he was drafted 28th overall in 1998. He was a top 10-15 pick! Oh gee why did he ever slip that far? Why did Theoren Fleury slip to the 9th round? Why did Nick Lidstom slip to the 4th round? If you’re not a top 10-15 draft pick you will not be a superstar in the NHL.

    According to you.

    Then why did O'Sullivan slip if talent is everything? Or why did Jean-Michel Bolduc slip to the 8th round?

    Teams respond to the scenarios that players put themselves in and if players respond well and don't let it get to them, they make teams look foolish for not taking them.

    The thing is also this, players have all different upsides to their game, plus you got teams that know how to scout.

    Parise is a good example too, of why he dropped. I believe wasn't it a factor in size but the kid is extremely talented? But if it was talent alone, he would be in the top 10.

    Teams don't just go on talent alone, that's why I'm wondering why Schremp fell as far as he did, if Oiler fans keep saying nothing is wrong with him. Then why the hell did he fall?

    The kid is pretty freaking talented...But something made him drop...Attitude? Don't know...Team problems? Don't know...The thing is something turned off owners and coaches on drafting him!

    going in the 1st round seems good enough...

    schremp just talks too much for the (overwhelmingly canadian) hockey world...who like their players to be slow witted...

    as a highly confident american...rob schremp is a new kind of player...unafraid to speak his mind...

    of course...he will have to be able to back it up...

    You're not making a good case for yourself...

    Go sit in the corner and mumble to yourself while the grown-ups talk all right?

    Though you do raise a good point, in 2003 where would Schremp be taken? 1st or 2nd round? 2005?

    Slow witted? Yes, us Canadians like dumb hockey players :shakehead
    Certainly, there is a general preference for humble, down to earth people, but not being a jackass isn't the same as being dumb.

    Edit: Besides, its not like we're adverse to a little swagger. The 80s Oilers were cocky as hell, even before they won the Cup.

    Or...maybe the fact that his Junior coach benched him in a playoff series for unreported reasons (read attitude). This signals that regardless of his talent level, this coach (an ex-NHL player) and GM believe the team is better off without him.

    That alone will scare off NHL GMs.

    given the current sorry state of the edmonton oilers...schremp just might be able to give them a little much-needed swagger...

    not that any of the current oilers staff have anything much to talk about...since all of the top guys(coffey/gretzky/messier/anderson/kurri/fuhr were basically run out of town on a rail...

    i like kevin lowe...hes a good man for the current oilers...

    but mactavish seems like a moron...he just hasnt got any of the smarts that you get in a real good coach(bowman, hitchcock, slats in the 80s)...

    i just hope he knows what to do with schremp...and that schremp knows how to put up with the toothless oilers...who try to play like its the 1980s but without any of the talent that allowed the 80s guys to play the way they did
