The longer this goes on, the more unlikely it is that he's signing in Detroit. But either way it goes, some of y'all need to get a grip. It's a big decision however you shake it. If you want on-demand entertainment, sign up for Netflix.

He's on a flight with Babcock talking strategy and where to trade Ian White.

Maybe the Wings are waiting for Lidstrom to fly into town to make the Dekeyser signing announcement. I should post this "insider information" on twitter!

Malik has. 

 

@georgemalikRed Bird III is flying over Vegas, and there's no news to bet upon about DeKeyser. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N682RW  (Flightaware's N682RW page).

He has to clear it with Bettman that he is allowed to sign with a team which is not the Pittsburgh Penguins.  This could take awhile.  Gary has to call Sid first and make sure it's ok that Danny sign with a different team.

This has gone on too long to have much hope anymore.  There's going to be an undeserved, senseless nuclear meltdown if he doesn't sign here.

...people don't honestly believe that DeKeyser is waiting for a plane to land for him to announce...do they?

Honestly, the more and more this gets dragged out past noon just makes me think he's signing here 100% now. He was supposed to have a decision made at noon. Why no announcement coming up on 3pm? 3 hours past your deadline? The more and more closer we get to 4:30ish, the more I honestly think he may be waiting for the team. Ah, i'm just sitting here rationalizing like a good homer fan.

The lockout bird just landed in Pittsburgh. DeKeysers decision coming soon.

I have a question.  Does anybody know if Dekeyser is physically still in Toronto? Think about it.  By all accounts, Dekeyser had his equipment and was ready to join his team immediately after his decision.  The Wings aren't due back in Detroit until around 5:00.  Seems like the wait here actually works in our favor right? 

 

Maybe we're waiting because he's not going to announce a signing on his own, and his new team won't be around to announce it with him until this afternoon.

 

My guess is they'll call a presser for right after the Wings get back to Detroit, and the signing will be announced with KH and Dekeyser attending personally to field questions and all of that.

 

All predicated, of course, on Dekeyser's current whereabouts.

I seriously was typing the exact same thing when you posted.  I'm with you buddy.

I think the Wings probably asked him to wait, if for no other reason than because nobody in the organization would be available to field questions, make remarks, etc. while they are in the air. 

 

Do we know if KH was with the team for last night's game or no?

*If Cindy and Pierre aren't in the middle of one of their butt lick sessions, then I think Gary could get the ok. Cindy would at least be in a good mood at that point.

Ok enough of this stupid Crosby/Bettman b.s. please.  Doesn't anyone remember Crosby being one of the most outspoken critics of Bettman during the lockout?  They're both idiots, but this absurd conspiracy theory that somehow the league has a preference for the Penguins is getting annoying. 

 

Also, this is a thread about Dekeyser, not Bettman and Crosby.  This is every bit as annoying as people bringing up how Franzen is a floater in each and every single thread on this site. 

 

Crosby's marketable and the NHL is a business, get over it.  Or at the very least be creative with it instead of pandering to the lowest common denominator.
