*UPDATE*

According to my friend (the one who date's Dan's sister) Dan is making a decision on Thursday! Of course this just after Holland decides to send Smith back to GRR in favor of a less talented Kindl. That doesn't show Dan much confidence that Holland seriously wants him in Detroit, but only to play in GRR for 4-5 years first. Holland is going to shoot the pooch on this one with the way he has handled Smith. If Danny signs somewhere else it will be all Holland's fault in the way he handles his players. Say what you want about Holland and his supposed best GM in the world status, but he definitely messed up by sending Smith down and not just sitting Kindl. He better hope that Danny wants to be a Red Wing so bad that he is willing to pass up instant NHL play to sign here and be stuck in GRR until he has no more options to be sent down...but I doubt that will happen. Danny will sign somewhere else, become a star and Holland will still be considered the best? This is what I laugh at. A combo of Smith and Dekeyser would be much more physical and productive that Kindl/Ericsson. I certainly hope Danny wants to be a Red Wing REALLY bad!

Also, Dan's mom likes what Burke is saying in Toronto and now Philly and Calgary are involved in wanting to sign him...along with Tampa still. He said Dan told him that he wants to play in Detroit, so I hope that he chooses here. But he could be a millionaire in one of the other cities and be playing NHL NOW, but not so much on a 2-way contract in GRR. I don't get Holland sometimes, Smith has done more in his short time here than Kindl has done his entire career...well, at least this year.

All I got to say is Holland best not miss out on this one....

EDIT: Not that I am saying Danny should be in the lineup now with Smith, but there is no way Holland should let Dekeyser go somewhere else and he should ditch Kindl over the summer and have Danny be one of the constant call ups all season long. But the prospect of being buried in GRR for 4-5 years cannot be too attractive...

Thanks for the update. Always nice when the guys with inside info share it with the group.

But seriously is his mom retarded? A young hyped dman in Toronto is the worst thing I've seen. Young guys not playing like Holzer and Aulie after Aulie proved he could handle top minutes well. And young guys like Schenn not panning out with that media messing with their heads.

I hope he makes his own decision and doesnt listen to his mom

Me too! I'd hate to see him go anywhere else but here, but NHL or AHL...which would you choose? I just hope he decides to take the I-96 route...

Maybe you should just drop the whole neg thing and let it go. You are the only person who cares about it, like its some kind of currency or something. This is a Wings message board. Maybe you should just talk about hockey instead of your strange obsession with the +/- buttons that serve no function.

People might actually stop negging you too, just a thought.

Maybe he is already in agreement with Kenny and is being "stashed away" at college for another year.

Could be a few spots on D opening up in the next few seasons.

The Miller salesman that comes into my work used to play hockey at Western. A couple of weeks ago he told me that the Wings sent Ken Holland, Jimmy D, Chelios, Draper, and more a while back to one of his games. Anyways, Ken Holland apparently had told him that the Wings would like Dan to stay in college for another year. Now that this report has come out that he will stay another year at Western, I wonder if that means he has secretly decided to join the Wings in the future.

Also, I realize that this does sound unreliable coming from me, but if anyone can remember, I did report that the Wings signed Jason Williams on this forum before it was out on the press. (A lot of good he did us)

I remember that, something about you seeing Holland at a baseball game and he told you? A select few ripped on you for about a week until the signing was announced then they all shut up.

I could see this being true. Dekeyser takes one more year in the NCAA, Kindl, Ericcson and Smith battle it out and see who needs to stay. Move one of them and bring in Dekeyser after this season

Not necessarily. It reads like denial, but the Holland-stashing-him-away-for-another-year scenario is not entirely ridiculous.

I'm happy he decided to stay another year in college. The problem with these youngsters is the drive to play in the NHL right away, when they fail to understand the concept of development. If you honestly think this guy could just come into the NHL and be successful, well congrats, but it most likely wouldn't be that way. The development process of the Red Wings organization doesn't get mimic'ed because it doesn't work.... it's because it makes sense. We're talking a young college D-man who would be prone to make numerous turn overs and bad plays while changing to the pace. The NHL is filled with players at his level, and well beyond his level... the CCHA is not. It would be a joke, and honestly I would be pissed if his parents were talking him into going the easier route and signing with a team that would ALLOW him up that early. Sign with an organization that knows what their doing, earn your spot in the lineup, and trust me, you'll be a better player down the road. His time with the organization and development with the Griffins, would only make him better.
