Exactly where DeKeyser should be if we sign him.

Just remembered that DeKeyser will have the opportunity to play in a Winter Classic next year have he sign with the Wings. Playing at the big house in an original 6 winter classic in front of friends and family? Sheeeeeeeeez sign it.

Also, Schultz didn't sign for ice time. Its been quoted numerous times that he was more than willing to go play in the A. Sustr just signed his contract in Tampa Bay without anything guaranteed. Guaranteed ice time is fabricated idea that forum posters talk about. Young players don't have the leverage to tell franchises where they want to play, especially when they're unproven at that level and without AHL experience.

Ok, so I cannot let this go.  I suppose it could be just a coincidence that they did a focus on Dan Dekeyser during the 1st period.  We also now know that Mickey knows his family, has skated with Dan on many occasions and said he hopes to be calling his name for the Red Wings soon...

 

This is like when your mom and dad asks you what is the one thing you want for Christmas, then for weeks they refer to it in a hundred different ways, how it would be so useful and practical and fun to have, over and over and over. You are so excited for it, that when you actually open it up on Christmas morning, you are filled with joy, but you have the weird feeling that it wasn't even that big of a surprise...

 

BTW, I now Danny wore #5 at WMU, obviously cannot have, but I mentioned #15 the other day, would be the closest thing to 5 we have.  I also put the request in with Dan's sister (via my buddy) to have him choose #15...doesn't mean anything, but I couldn't help but feel some kind of pride if he picked it.... :lol:

 

If this signing comes to fruition, I will have a weird feeling of being the guy who was on his bandwagon for over a year and pretty much willed him to the Red WIngs....ok, ok, not really, but I have been talking about him for a long long time, and if it happens, I will be so happy!

 

I can't wait!

Well, as much I agree with your point about the Winter Classic, You could replace the word Wings with Leafs (the other team who wants him) and that sentence would have the same meaning....

I hate the way that looks just as much as I love the way your original sentence looks! Lets hope it doesn't come down to that! Yuck!

Who said he wanted Toronto? People brought up Toronto because that's where Brian Burke had him scoped in. Now Brian Burke is with Anaheim and that's why their in discussion

The frenzy here is getting crazy.  I hope the Wings sign DeKeyser, but future captain?  Top 4 minutes?  Guaranteed ice time?

 

I also think Wings fans totally overestimate the influence of the Winter Classic.  Do I think players will enjoy it?  Sure.  But it's a regular season game.  It didn't keep Lidstrom from retiring, it didn't bring Suter and Parise here and it's not going to be a factor in DeKeyser signing with the Wings or not.

Easy Cupcake.... I don't know who said future Captain, but it was Helen St. James that said top 4 minutes, and it was Babcock who (allegedly) told Dan himself that he had guaranteed ice time...

 

You will have to excuse the excitement of the die hard Wings fans, this guy is coveted by 30 teams...the last three UFA's that were coveted by 30 teams we lost out on.  So it's a bit enthusiastic and exciting to know that your Detroit Red Wings are the frontrunners to land the most coveted player since the Olsen Twins...Just calm down gobot.  :P

Lets not get too sure about this until it happens.  Detroit's future is f***knows, Edmontons is possible Dynasty. 

 

No such thing as a Dynasty in the cap world. Edmonton looks great now for the future. Lets see how great they are when all those #1 pick are looking for big money on there 2nd contracts.

People on here make me crack up at times.  Right now he's no better then anyone on our roster and possibly in line with Lashoff.  I find it hard to believe the Wings promised him top 4 minutes when they wouldnt promise Schultz - a much better player then him a roster spot just last summer.
 
It's amusing the over-valuing of prospects by some Wings fans. 


It must have something to do with him being from Michigan.  I remember the hype Abdelkader got.  Atleast he was drafted tho ;)
 
Nyquist isn't looking so hot this year.  Will people keep pumping his tires?

If there's this kind of frenzy to sign this kid all over the league, and he's generally regarded to be a top 6 guy now, lets just assume that he's better than Lashoff. I dont understand why they wouldnt give Schultz a spot, especially given the fact that im sure the organization seen the lockout coming. But i believe part of the difference is right now we know what we have and can make a better informed decision, whereas in the summer its hard to promise a kid who has never played a pro game a spot when you have 8 defenseman with NHL experience.

The suspense is killing me.  I cant believe EDM is pushing so hard for him, I mean come on!  If he doesn't sign with the Wings I might barf, but if he signs with the Oilers....I don't even know how I would react to that.  Would that not be some form of sacrilege?

Think of it this way.....

 

You are Danny and you are looking for a team that is going to compete for a Stanley Cup.  Look at Detroit.  They are an older team with a pedigree for making the playoffs and winning 4 Stanley Cups in the last 16 years.  Then you look at Edmonton, and they are a young up and coming team that looks like they will compete for a cup in the next couple years.  Edmonton may have a bigger upswing in his mind than Detroit. 

 

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if he signs with Edmonton over Detroit.  Its not like Edmonton is a toilet team with no upswing.  Now, if Danny chose Florida over Detroit, then I would be more concerned.  :)

Edmonton will not win a cup, by the time the team matures it will start falling apart to cope with the cap. I expect to see Dekeyser in Red and White by next week  :hammer:

Edm sucks, they are always pimped as though they are going to do something, but like CO they will be picking in the top 10 AGAIN.  I'm pretty sure FL has had more recent success then EDM.

It would be great BUT. I don't see Babcock putting a rookie with no professional hockey experience in immediately.  I just can't believe that he would.  If Danny wants to play in the NHL immediately, he will pick a team that will be willing to do that and sorry, but that probably isn't the Wings.  In fact, I can't imagine that any team will commit to playing him immediately unless they have nothing to lose - no hope for the playoffs.  

 

Danny has a toough decision to make.  The AHL for a good team or the NHL for a crappy team.


Do or do not. There is no try

If I was a hockey player, I would LOVE to play in the winged wheel, that has to be the greatest honour. Think about it, 11 cups, some of the greatest players to ever take the ice wore the same jersey. Very classy organization, treats the players well, and you get an opportunity to play with #13 and #40. I would be sold right there, get #13 to show you a couple things (pasha could probably be a better defenseman then half the league). Hope you are reading this danny D!!! Detroit NEEDS you :)

Wrong, with Quincey injured, Holland wants to get #18 off the ice and quick, Danny D will be making sure Mr. White will be a healthy scratch

We've been hearing for how many years now that Edmonton is an "up and coming team"?  Let's see if they can actually make the playoffs before we annoint them a future dynasty in the making.

Thats the downswing to Edmonton.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think that Edmonton is a good spot either, but Danny could easily see them as a better option than Detroit.

DeKeyser could very easily come in and play for the Red Wings immediately. They have a lot of bodies on defense, but with Quincey out, that 6th spot is quite attainable right now. White is horrible and was a healthy scratch for a long stretch. Huskins is a nice depth player and Colaiacovo is always a health concern.

If he thinks that, then he clearly hasn't been paying attention to how the Edmonton Oilers have run their hockey club since around 1990.
