Well, at least we have one reason to tune into tomorrow's sure-fire loss: showboat and all-round frat tard Robbie Schremp will likely make his NHL debut against Minnesota. Most of the Oilogosphere agrees that this guy is no saviour and even a bit of a longshot to make the team next year. He's not a great skater, poor defensively and has been a healthy scratch at times this season in Wilkes-Barre.
But still ... I'm pulling for him! What other Oiler might threaten to "kayak" down the ice in celebrating a shootout goal? Ladislav Smid, maybe — or not at all, come to think of it. Either way, it should be interesting to see how Number 44 looks in his debut, especially if he gets a shot on the powerplay.
