Well, the Oilers Got One Call-up Right Anyway

Congrats to Ryan Potulny on his 2nd promotion to the Oilers. However from where I sit, I'd still like to see Schremp AND Potulny up top. They are Springfield's top 2 forwards, and they could flank Erik Cole while Nilsson shifts to the RW on the Moreau and Pouliot line.

Potulny was the Falcons best player last weekend and deserved the call ahead of Reddox, however Gagner's status was still up in the air and Ryan had an All Star game to participate in. I have to wonder though, if Schremp had been playing and he was the best player on the ice last weekend would it have even mattered?

Prior to missing his last 2 games, Schremp was coming around nicely and he could very well have been the teams top player last weekend. Will there be room for promotion for a player like Schremp is he plays dynamite in Springfield? The Oilers got it right with Potulny, he was the teams top forward so he deserves the shot.

Now it's time for the Oilers to get it right if Schremp plays well and Reddox doesn't. Reddox belongs on the farm, Potulny and Schremp belong with the big club. Get it right management.
