“It was something Scott [Gordon] and I talked about yesterday when he was put on waivers,” Islanders general manager Garth Snow said. “For us it’s a situation where we can give a highly-skilled player with great vision on the ice a new opportunity. It’ll be a good change in scenery for him.”
Said Scott Gordon: “He’s got incredible skill.”
“He has the opportunity of a second chance. What he does with it is in his hands.”

Rob Schremp has signed a one-year contract with the Edmonton Oilers, The Journal has learned.
Schremp’s new contract is a two-way deal, meaning Schremp will command $715,000 if he makes the NHL club, but less than $75,000 if he is sent down to the Oilers’ American Hockey League affiliate in Springfield, Mass.
It also means that Schremp will have to clear waivers if he’s sent down to the minors because he has now played three full seasons in the AHL.
