does this year count as one of the 2 years of the contract? 

I believe if he plays in something like 5 or 6 games (it's an odd number because of the lockout) it burns a year off his contract.

Fairly certain it will count as a year regardless. Slide rules only apply to ELCs signed by 18 or 19 year-olds. I don't believe anything changed in the new CBA, but I could be wrong.

It doesn't look like the Wings plan on even playing him that much this season.  His delay in decision was likely because of that factor.  I'm sure he'd play every game with Edmonton.  Wings, true to form, seem to want to take it slow, per the article below. 

"DeKeyser will continue to practice with the Red Wings, and Holland feels DeKeyser could ultimately play in a game."

Great signing by the RW's. yes it will take him some time to adjust to the NHL. he needs some practice just to learn everyones moves, habits, and the communications on ice. No rush. That does give us 10 Dmen now, so yes some one or ones will be moved in some form or another.

 

On a different note. My gosh. Some of you are just plain silly. Just because you didn't get the info YOU wanted when YOU wanted it, you go off into bizzareland. In fact, I would like to invite all of you guys to my house to play poker. Bring lots of cash.

This was DD'd biggest day of his life to date, and HE had all the right to due it whatever way HE wanted to. This day was all about HIM not any of us. You only get one first pro contract. It is kinda like your first kiss, first "time" first job, first love etc.....

I honestly could not even imagine what this day must have been like for him.

As kid I dreamed of playing shortstop for the Tigers...it didnt happen:). . DD is living out every kids dream...so cool!

Yes. That is why he signed with Detroit. I heard that he likes pizza. He got 2 little Caesars coupon as a  signing bonus from Holland. This is what he got.Detroit owner doesn't have the money. He haven't signed anyone in the last 5 years and never will. Detroit have to wait until his son takes over the ownership, I guess.


Wtf are you talking about?? Entry level contracts are capped...

Great pic, I can't wait for Baseball season! Let's Go Tigers!

I wouldn't worry about it, those idiots in Quebec are trying to do away with English (and I'm not kidding), they wouldn't understand it anyway.



Edit: As for the signing, I've never heard of DeKeyser until I saw discussions about him on the board, so I guess it's ok. Good to see he picked us out of 8 teams. I guess people still want to play here and we haven't lost our shine yet :lol:

You are probably right. Malik said he believes that as soon as he plays a game, he burns a year.

At this point it seems likely that he'll be an RFA after next season. (Which really shouldn't be a cause for concern.)

As a Brewers fan this hits a little close to home...I don't mind the Tigers though but it definitely shows Mr. Ilitch is willing to do what it takes to win!

 

I was definitely excited when I heard Dekeyser picked the Wings. I saw limited footage of him since I mainly got WCHA games but I'm excited to see what he can bring to the team.

Pretty crazy how all of the sudden the Wings have one of the best D prospect pools in the league.

Wow he does have some reach on him.  It awesome that DeKeyser chose the Wings, and adding him to the defensive youth movement, I'd say we have a really solid defensive core being established for the next Wings' era.

Well great prospect pool doesnt equate to an amazing D corps necessarily.

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

DeKeyser said his idol, Nicklas Lidstrom, called him couple days ago to talk about playing for organization.

Cool, we signed a good young prospect. I guess we're all set at the deadline.
