    Personally, I'm shocked. If I was Schremp, I too would view this as a slap in the face, especially with a guy like Brady Murray being named to the squad. I wonder if "politics" did have something to do with this? One thing is for sure, USA Hockey has probably done serious harm to it's relationship with Schremp, and it's going to be interesting to see if he suits up for the U.S. in the future. One thing to note is Schremp's team mate, Danny Richmond will be named to the team. Yikes!




    * I also noticed that there have been 20 out of 22 spots now filled. That means there have been 4 players selected since the initial 16. Two are Richmond and Brady Murray, who are the other two? Also, since there are two spots left, couldn't Schremp still be added (although he might not accept)?

    Well, I don't see how a guy like Brett Sterling makes it in the first 16 and Schremp doesn't. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Hockey is a business.

    I'm sure USA Hockey isn't too happy about having to pay to get Schremp to play with the US Development team for as short a time as he did.

    It couldn't possibly be politics affecting hockey decisions could it?

    If it is, I'm utterly shocked and don't know what to say.........

    Hey if I was USA hockey I wouldn't put him on either, because of him they wasted $1,000's.

    I forgot about that. I guess Schremp shoudn't be surprised he was bypassed. Using a program as a bargaining tool isn't going to make you many friends.

    Robbie isn't the only one to be disapointed in recent years and he won't be the last. This type of politics is the reason why the US hasn't won this tournament in the past and probably won't win this one either. Though I don't believe it's all said and done because there still could be injuries and still some NHLer's on the list. One thing is for sure is that you increase your chances by a 1000 if you happen to go to the best team on the planet located in Ann Arbor.

    Brett Sterling played for the team at last year's tournament, so he'll naturally have a leg up in the selection committee's mind. He also had a helluva freshman year at CC, scoring more goals than Thomas Vanek did during the regular season. The only reason he wasn't a first-round pick is because he's so small.

    This is ridiculous. They did the same thing with Dan Fritsche last year. I can't wait to see who they added instead of him. It'll probably make for a good laugh.

    It's the same old song and dance. Priority is given to USNDTP guys, especially those who go to college. CHL guys by and large always get the shaft.

    Well, I don't think Robbie Schremp's absence is going to be that much of a differance maker. He would have been a great addition, but the U.S. will still ice a great team, with NHLers like Fritsche, Kesler, and Brown likely on the team. I just don't get how the team could bypass Schremp, who attended the evaluation camp over the summer, in favor of a guy like Brady Murray, who thumbed his nose at that invite, but for certain reasons has decided to jump aboard.

    Does anyone know the full story behind that? DId Schremp promise the USNDTP he would stick around for the remainder of the season?

    "Once we pay top-dollar amount, the federation (Hockey Canada) is supposed to ensure the team (the IceDogs) releases the player," said Jim Johannson, senior director of hockey operations for USA Hockey.

    I realize he was there last year and he produces for CC, however, if you've seen him play live you have to admit that Schremp has a leg up on him, even last year.

    I dunno why it would have to hurt his draft standing for the Habs to get a crack at him.

    I have never seen Schremp play, so I can't comment on him specifically. I wasn't necessarily stating Sterling's case over Schremp, just Sterling's case in general since his name was brought up. Personally, I don't care. I just hope we ice the best team possible.

    So Schremp jumps from the Development team to the CHL 2 years ago and doesn't get named to the team, but Danny Richmond who jumped from NCAA to the CHL 3 months ago is forgiven and named to the team.

    This is a joke, but I could careless. This just means that the Knights will still have one ofthe best players in the league when all of the other teams good players will be in Finland.

    I'd bet it has more to do with the 2-week stint earlier this year than it has to do with the jump to the CHL 2 years ago.

    There are a few teams that will be missing players over Christmas - the Knights are no different, except that they will have Schremp.
