I hope he makes his pick sooner then later, for the sake of everyone's sanity and my low level of patience. I'm still a toss up on my opinion of him coming here or not.

I really hope the Wings can get this guy, why should he sign with a team that has yet to make playoffs and develop their "big names" the right way?

 

I can think of a few reasons.

 

Sure, to us, the "right" decision is obvious. But put yourself in his shoes. He's, what, 14 years old? And he could be playing top minutes for an NHL team next week? And some of these teams are so bad/desperate that there's pretty much no way he'd ever be sent down to the AHL? And, what's more, he'd get The Star Treatment?

How many of you are gonna cry if he doesn't sign with us?

 

I just can't wait for this whole "Dekeyidstrom" circus to be over. I laugh when posters talk like this kid (who has never seen anything close to NHL action) is going to be a huge boost to the Wings for the rest of this season. Makes me wonder if any of them have ever heard of a guy named Ray Staszak...

I think Dekeyser is a good player and all, but I feel like this forum is sort of overrating him a bit. Maybe it's just me?

I literally have no idea what to expect from this guy. No tears will be shed here if he chooses Edmonton or elsewhere

he's 23 years old

 

anyways, just because he is visiting all these other teams doesn't mean he won't sign with the wings. he is just doing these other teams a favor and checking them out. no need to burn bridges with teams before your career even starts by just completely dismissing thise who want you to play for them.

I'll be bummed, but I'll get over it. Our D prospects are looking pretty good. Most of the pundits have him pegged as a second pairing guy. We have plenty of those already.

No. He's 14.

 

I'm hoping for the best, bracing for epic fail.

This whole exercise is not about "driving up the value" on DeKeyser given that there are limits to the contract he can sign.  It's all about giving him the chance to be "wined & dined" by the teams that want to show up to make their case.  Call it the "Zach Parise Treatment" & it might be the only chance he has to go through a circus like this depending on how he actually pans out. 

 

Personally, I don't buy into the Oilers being in the running let alone the front runner given that they're an absolute cluster-f*** of an organization.  The reason they landed Schultz is because of his desire to play close to home.  For all the vaunted young talent they have, they are nowhere close to putting it together before they have to start breaking the team apart because they can't afford everyone.  They have 11 top 25 picks in their line-up right now & what do they have to show for it?  What would the Wings have done with that opportunity?  We all know what good organizations (think Blackhawks & Pens) did with opportunities like that.  The Oil?  Not...even...close.  There's a much greater chance the Wings lose him to an Anaheim, Nashville, or St. Louis than Edmonton.


Money on the Board 2014: $5 per series, $5 per sweep, $5 per Kronwalling, $10 per Marchand Kronwalling, $1 per Zetterberg game, $1 per 2013 Calder Cup roster player goal

It's kind of at the point where everybody wants him and now I mostly want him just to say we won.
Sort of an "I don't know if I want him but I don't want anybody else to have him" ...my feelings towards this signing are starting to sound less hockey fan and more crazy ex-girlfriend.

It's not that people are over-rating him or calling him the next coming of Jesus. It's the fact that you can secure a potential top 3-5 defensive player for the price of FREE. You don't get top 4 defensemen growing on trees, none the less for the price of an ELC. That my friends, is why he is getting so much attention right now. No one thinks he is going to step in and give this team the push over the edge, but he certainly can help boost this blue line within the next 1-2 years.

Exactly. And you can chalk all the hype up to media boredom. I mean, hell, the trade deadline coverage on tsn alone is like a Wrestlemania broadcast,

Back to the "Dead Wings" if Holland can't sign Dekeyzerman...

Bugs me that people will be all over Holland if we don't get him. Google his name and the Red Wings are constantly mentioned. We've made it no secret we want him and if we don't get him you'd be an idiot to think Holland didn't offer everything he possibly could.

If Wings don't sign him, it's going to be a show on this forum. *Grabbing the popcorn*
