Schremp responded to a tweet on Saturday that compared the Islanders' record last season on Feb. 15 to their current standing in the league. The former 25th overall pick called Tavares an "I did my job" superstar and said the Toronto Maple Leafs forward cares more about his own personal accolades than the team's success.
The Islanders have improved significantly on defense this year, as they've allowed 82 fewer goals than they did at this point last season.
Tavares, meanwhile, is on pace to post career highs in both goals and points with the Maple Leafs. The 28-year-old recently said he still has no regrets about his decision to leave the Islanders in free agency last summer.
