Roster changes

ducks-in-a-row

While you have been waiting for lunch hour to arrive, Jason Gregor and Robin Brownlee have been hard at work down at RX1, gathering intel on the rebel forces.

And while you have been thinking about the delicious burritos and refreshing soft drinks soon to hit your lips, the Oilers have seemingly settled on line-up combinations that should take effect until 0:29 into the first period on Saturday night when they will be shuffled immediately.

Here is the lineup as of this morning:

Jacques — Horcoff — Hemsky O'Sullivan — Comrie — Stone Penner — Brule — Cogliano Moreau — Gagner — Stortini

The End of Schremp

The big news from Gregor this morning to the Nation via your ol' pal Wanye is that Reddox and Schremp have been placed on waivers. For those among us who have had a torrid love affair with #88 these past few years, you will be horrified to learn he is now a member of the New York Islanders.

Schremp was unable to deliver the goods in his first Training Camp under the new regime. Somewhere MacT is reading the news and laughing aloud. "Told you he wasn't NHL material," he is saying and stroking his fine mane of silver hair.

On behalf of Oilers fans we shall offer this morning prayer to the Gods of Hockey:

Dear Gods of Hockey, With your hockey hair and missing teeth, And your ability to "always give 110%" Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please don't let Rob Schremp to turn out to be a star in the NHL and make the Oilers look like idiots for letting him go.

Seriously.

Please.

I, for one, have no doubt he will be back to two or three by christmas, baring injuries speeding it up.

Ill do you one better, he will be back on the top 3 within a week, hell maybe even 1 period. Although I don't mind this if Gags gets all the powerplay time that Hemsky doesnt use

There are actually quite a few Jimmys that post here. Maybe I should test drive a new handle.

At least you could refer to that one in casual conversation, unlike some others I could point to.

I'm so glad Wanye didn't post that mess on ON, it might fly on CanuckArmy, but that was one poorly researched article.

@ Ender the Dragon: what makes u compare schremp to bossy, bossy was in my very bias opinion, the best goal scorer all time before he put his back out

@ SkadderBrain: My point was that Schremp bears little if any resemblance to Bossy (or even Yashin) and that all the NYI fans who will now be picking up the role formerly held by Edmontonians, that is, hoping and praying that this guy is as good in the NHL as he is on YouTube, are in for a big disappointment.

And yes, the name comes from both Card's novel as well as the Bruce Lee film from 1973.
