Save your boos
Well, on my plane ride home from Vegas, I learned that the snot-nosed kid who snubbed Edmonton is back in town. I’m sure many of you are planning on booing/heckling the crap out of him, but I say “save your boos.”
Comrie did screw up. He’s admitted to it though: “I’ve come out and said I didn’t handle it properly. I was young. I made mistakes and I’ve learned a lot.” Even Lowe admitted to making a mistake in how he handled it.

A bit slow on this one (I actually worked at work today), but the Oilers and Rob Schremp have agreed to a 1-year, 2-way contract that will see Schremp earn $715K in the NHL or $75k in the AHL. Rumors are that the Islanders would scoop him up should the Oilers place him on waivers (Schremp will need to clear waivers if he is sent to Springfield). So it’s likely he’ll earn the big cash… somewhere this year. And that means somewhere this year we’ll get to see some “Rob Schremp hockey”. Continue reading 'Schremp signs, and other Oilers stuff..'»
