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

 

I wouldn't be surprised at that. Kindl keeps getting better and more comfortable, and DeKeyser will only get better as well. Lashoff's a young guy too, it's a good problem to have after everyone wrote us off when Lidstrom retired.

Also, does this mean LeftWinger can come back? I feel like he just didn't want to show up anymore until #DeKeyserWatch was over.

Horton

 

Boston isn't hurting for defense, and Horton is an important scorer. Not happening.

Most likely will be in Monday.

I'm fine with that, he may be NHL ready but I would not want a kid with only a day with the team to suit up against Chicago. Colorado is fine though.

Exactly what I was thinking. Chicago may make him go condition black. Colorado may have speed, but he's used to speedy college kids. I would be much more comfortable with him in his first game infront of the home crowd against Colorado. He's going to be nervous, anxious, first game playing for his childhood team, infront of his home crowd. Sure, he's played at the Joe for the CCHA, but it doesn't equate to playing in the Winged Wheel infront of a Red Wings crowd.

Will be curious to see how the glut at D will be resolved.  How ironic that everyone thought our defense was decimated and now we seem to have an abundance of young, talented defensemen, with even more solid prospects waiting in the wings.  Not bad for management that doesn't plan for the future.

Can't wait for the first "Trade DeKeyser" thread.

Glad we got him, now let's see him develop into a solid NHL defenseman over the next few years. As of yet, he has still not played a single professional game.

That's why Cleary changed his name back to Daniel.

Awesome news. Can't wait to see what happens next. We sure have a lot of defense now, I'd be really disappointed in holland if some moves don't happen.

Haha!  Yeah we've seen those movies here before on LGW.  Kronwall had a few; Ericsson had a whole series.  Etc.

I said this few hours ago... :)

Not sure of the truth of this but I have read in a couple of places that the news was delayed because DeKeyser asked permission to personally call the other teams who showed interest and let them know he was going with the Wings. Maybe not the prima donna move that some here were claiming (this is not directed at you Dom) and a very classy and respectable move instead.

What a stupid decision. I would prefer to dump Huskins and have him wear #3. 65 is just so meh. Also 6 is available too.


Edited by dirtydangles, 29 March 2013 - 04:50 PM.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Don't go expecting him to get top ice time out of the gate...


 

Holland said DeKeyser will be at practice Saturday, but he won't play Sunday when the Wings host the Blackhawks, or Monday against the Avalanche.

 

"He needs to practice," Holland said. "I would say that at the pro level, he's a defensive defenseman. He's got to get stronger.

 

"He'll be with us the rest of the regular season. When he plays is up to Mike Babcock, but we're not holding tryouts. We're trying to make the playoffs. Danny understands that we're in a playoff race."
