In Topic: DeKeyser re-signed to a 6 year deal

Right about perfect. That's the going rate for a second pair guy, and he's a very good one, and that should be a still in a few years.

Now, had he stayed in Detroit he's looking at another what, 24 hours round trip to what you just calculated?

I think I'm done with this site.

I don't really understand your first comment? He did an interview with Mitch Albom, he authorized the release of it on April 11th - this is what started the "rumours"? If this isn't seen as a distraction to a professional franchise (that happens to have 19 other players starting a playoff series at different points in their careers) - I don't know what to tell you.
It isn't me who "keeps citing" the 30 hour drive, that was the first time I commented on it (do your homework) - but unfortunately it happens to be a fact that makes his excuse for leaving less legitimate. Yes, we are all aware that planes travel at faster speeds than automobiles, but planes also travel from Russia to Detroit - and if a 3 hour flight (which is really a 6-7 hour travel commitment) is going to change his relationship with his daughter, I don't really believe it. 
If our team was competitive, he probably finishes out his contract. Instead he left to play for the best team in the KHL, while he still has a couple years left to chase a championship. The Illitch family threatened him with a lawsuit one year ago (when he initially wanted to leave) and probably cut him a deal. Something tells me that
same family won't be hanging the #13 in their new building.

You're right. A three hour flight is totally what it would be to fly internationally from Detroit to his home.

The IQ in this place has dropped considerably the last year or two.

He didn't put it out there. He addressed the rumors once they were gaining traction to reduce the uncertainty.

And why do you keep citing a 30 hour drive? He's never going to drive to see her. Someone noted it's like a three hour flight. Be reasonable.

But he won't be good this season, I'd bet.
