Schremp Could Be An Islander

From Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal

"Is this Rob Schremp's last stand?

The lightning rod for many Edmonton Oilers fans, who have griped that the 23-year-old forward hasn't been given a fair shake in the last few years, has a new two-way, one-year contract for $715,000 US in the National Hockey League and $70,000 in the minors.
But if Schremp fails to crack the Oilers roster and gets sent to the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League, there are strong indications the New York Islanders would take him on waivers."

My thanks goes to Hendricks Hockey for the tip. Schremp is defenitely on the Islanders fans radar, and this could be a bigger waiver draft for the Islanders than what most are realizing. The Islanders have the first choice in the waiver draft, so if the Islanders really want to restock the organization, it could start with Schremp.  Here is his bio: 5'11'' 200 lbs. From what I've been able to get from a few Oilers fans, he can score goals, but needs work on his defence. I know from reading that Islanders fans would love to have him. Schremp is a 1st round pick (25th overall) in the 2004 draft.
