Hell Hath Frozen Over, and I Couldn't Be Happier!

It will help global warming, and Rob freaking Schremp SHOULD get a shot in a top 6 role with the Oilers! Emphasis on SHOULD, he deserves it. For all of the crap that he has gotten for having a lone goal in 18 AHL games, he has been a playmaking wizard. To boot, in his last 6 games he's been looking to shoot the puck, and IMO if he gets at least 3-4 games in the clubs top 6 and PP time, he will pot his first NHL goal. He is overdue, and hopefully the Oilers can reap the rewards of Schremp's recent shooting gallery mentality.

While it looks like a temporary callup with Robert Nilsson going down, it is up to Schremp to take advantage of his ice time and make himself a fixture on the team. He will need some help, like not playing with Zack Stortini, but if he gets a chance with some offensive minded linemates, he could really put on a show.

Go get 'em kid, your chance is here, now make the most of it. If you want to be done with the AHL, then play like a mad man full of confidence and refuse to take no for an answer!

Now lets hope that he gets a real opportunity and that he in turn makes the most of it ;)

He plays D and Smid draws back in as a LW, right?

He plays in goal and Roli draws in at 2nd line LW.

Hey BBO,
I think I may be just as happy for you as I am for Schremp with this call-up! Fingers crossed that the kid gets a goal and 2 assists playing with Gags and Cole! Wouldn't that be amazing?
