Not sure if its been posted anywhere else::::

@HeleneStJames: #Redwings have made pitch to Danny DeKeyser. Agent has told teams they are going through process and will take a few days to make decision.

Beautiful, will he be able to start in the NHL off the bat though? Or is he a AHL guy for now and will come up when he's ready?

He will sign with a team that offers him NHL minutes...according to my source (Danny D's sister) Babcock has indeed told him that he has a spot in the NHL...just hearsay though, you never know what was said...

Awesome. There is no reason the Wings can't give him minutes over Cola, White, and Huskins. I hope he adjusts fast!

i agree...trial by fire.

 

give him 5 games or so, to adapt...no mistakes ( or at least minimal)

 

then re-evaluate.

 

typical for andersson, nyquist, tatar, smith etc.


Dino Ciccarelli will always be #1

Hope we get the kid. Watch some of his plays and he looks pretty mature. The best part is that Wings don't have to give up anybody and an entry level contract. We can spend the money for a forward. Hope this deal goes trough. Go Wings ! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

It sounds like this guy will be inserted into the lineup immediately... Likely pushing White back out of the top 6.

Smith, Kindl, Lashoff, Dekeyser. Who would've thought at the beginning of the year...

 Pretty amazing considering the criticism given about the defense and defensive prospects. Now we almost have too many high quality D prospects... almost. Those four guys plus Sproul and Ouellet is a pretty darn good group of D prospects.

 

I certainly hope the wings get DD, even if he doesn't make a huge impact right away, it would be very reassuring to know that the future of the D is in good shape.

And Almquist put a hat trick last night with the Griffins.

Leftwinger youve been saying youve had that source since last season so I believe you, I dont think anyone would go on that long about a fake source so thats encouraging.

 

He would probably be better than White, CC, Huskins and Lashoff right now so I see him as an improvement to the team. No reason he shouldnt get offered a spot on the squad. Once hes signed if hes clearly not ready you can still send him down

*UPDATE*

 

Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie)

 

With Western Michigan out of NCAA playoffs, sought-after UFA D Dan DeKeyser will be in Toronto Tuesday to meet with advisors/field offfers.

 

So, we won't know until at least Tuesday, it seems.

Yep, he's heading to Toronto to meet up with his agent and start sifting through the offers. We can only pray that he wants to come here. I mean.. the guy has a Wings jersey dawned in the window of his dorm room, wears the Winged Wheel around the campus of WMU, and has grown up watching the team. No team can honestly offer him more. There isn't anything we can do now except sit here and hope the kid wants to play hockey at the professional level locally.

Many in hockey believe DET is frontrunner for DeKeyser but sorting/selection process starts Tuesday, may take a day or two to complete.
