Telling you, me and kipwinger were on to something when we suggested the more time passed, the more certain it meant he was waiting for the team to land. The announcement came as the Wings landed in DTW. Coincidence? Possibly, but that is one hell of a coincidence. He's magically 4 hours and 36 minutes late from his deadline, as Wings arrive at 4:37pm est in DTW.

 

 

I said this few hours ago... :)

I'm not sure he'll play against Chicago immediately on Sunday, but I can see him in the lineup Monday against Colorado. If he has a good game and shows he has potential within his limitations in the big show, it would enable Holland to make a push for a forward. It would give us the one chance to see how he plays in the big show before the trade deadline.

...yet

Glad to see the Wings win one of these "every team is courting him" competitions. From what I understand, the Preds were absolutely in full court press to try and land him.

Malik is predicting we'll play him a few games with the big club, then send him to GR for a bit. Since Blashill is in GR, it wouldn't surprise me to see that happen.

Well going forward the next few years with Kronwall, Ericsson, Smith, DeKeyser, Lashoff and Kindl were looking pretty good. Adding another #2/3 would really shore up the D. I know Q started to play better after the bad start to the year, but I don't believe he's the answer. Plus a right handed shot wouldn't hurt.

Now let's trade Flip and Quincey to Boston for McQuaid, Jared Knight and the 1st rounder.

A lot of nice things to say about Danny from Corey Pronman:

 

 

 

DeKeyser is an obvious significant addition for the DET organization. 2nd best young dman in the org for them now behind Smith.

 

 

From NHL scouts I've talked to and as well as my own observations, DeKeyser is NHL ready and projects as an above-average NHL defenseman.

 

 

Also just because I say DeKeyser projects as an above-average NHL dman, does not mean I believe he will be that right now.

 

 

DET have good young D in the org--Ouellet, Sproul, Almquist, Marchenko-- but needed a guy who is of high caliber & ready now. Fits the bill.

 

 

DeKeyser, although JS obviously better player. RT @bornreddy91: more polished in own end coming out of college? dekeyser or justin schultz?

It doesn't make sense, the idea that when things don't go well with free agents, it's Holland's his fault, but when things go right with free agents, it's not Holland but instead other factors. He was the one who got this done, with numerous other GMs trying as well.

 

Anyway, good signing, good for the team.

Apologies.

Yep, it's a good group. Lashoff may end up as #7 when all is said and done.

As far as I remember Hossa's agent called Kenny...

#RedWings win D Danny DeKeyser sweepstakes. He'll join practices asap, but won't play Sunday when Wings host Blackhawks.

 

Most likely will be in Monday.
