Kukla's Korner suggested last night that Holland stayed in the Midwest instead of joining the team after his pitch to Dekeyser.

LET THE RAMPANT SPECULATION BEG... err continue.

I can only hope he's simply calling teams right now and allowing them to hear from him first that they are not going to get him. Otherwise, it's bad on his agency to announce he will have a decision by noon and not have anything announced or any information pending.

Honestly this is getting ridiculous

George Malik mentioned that technically, DeKeyser has until the trade deadline to make his decision and still play this season...

So there's always a chance we might still have to wait awhile to find out his decision...

 

Yet if he actually wants to play this season he should realize the earlier he decides the better. Will need time to adapt to a new system not to mention the speed and tempo of the NHL.

The latest reports are saying he will be making his decision sometime today. Hard to get our hopes up just yet. But hopefully his Michigan-ties and him growing up a Wings fan (and his favorite all time player was Lidstrom) will be enough to sway him our way

I'm hearing on twitter that his decision will come within yet another 30 minutes (12:20 pm as I write this).

 

I can't believe that the wait is a good sign for Detroit. Not buying the "Iginla hoopla" excuse.

 

Why so conflicted Danny?

I'm hoping it's his agent (Meehan) trying to drum up as much attention as possible. Otherwise I don't understand the delay if he is in fact choosing Detroit.

Wishful thinking on Son of a Wing's part, I'm afraid. I seriously hope I'm wrong though and will be happy to eat crow.

 

Bring on Dekeyser in the red and white!

Last week it was between: DET, STL, NSH, ANA & EDM.

By yesterday, his shortlist had been narrowed down to every NHL team but Columbus...

i meant it in a way that he went from being a college player turning pro, to Nick Lidstrom in a matter of a few days. The only issue is that he hasn't even stepped on pro ice yet.

I'm hearing that a decision may be happening in the next 30 minutes from the #DeKeyser Camp. My bet is still on the #RedWings

Why?!

 

Why do I hope that? Because otherwise I don't see how the delay would be in Detroit's favor as far as landing him.

 

Why would his agent do that? I don't know it gets people talking and gets his name out there. Just take a look at how many articles have been written in the media about the guy in the last couple days.

What else do we have to do on a Friday when many of us aren't working? :D

Today is going to be a great day. Big news coming!

 

Now Dekeyser will delay again, waiting for Justin's news to break.
