Don't think he will get the Schultz level hype because his offense just isn't there. He will be the top college free agent so some hype will be around him. I really like his game, but I wouldn't put him above Marchenko. Even Backman could be in front of him in terms of age, development and ceiling. I don't think he lands inside the top 15 on our current list. He is a much better version of Lashoff but I just think people should keep this in mind when the DeKeyser hype train takes off this year. He has qualities but his expectations could get out of whack, he is a defensive d-man. I think DeKeyser will be best served to go to a team that might not rush him right away, his immediate NHL ready status still is something I am not totally sold on. Not bury him for a couple of years, but maybe not pencil him in going into training camp.
