DeKeyser is still on just about every NHL team's FA wish list too.

Some other collegiate FAs that NHL teams are looking closely at (and keep in mind that not all of these guys are seniors and this is NOT a complete list nor are the players listed in any particular order):

F Antoine Laganiere - Yale
F Eriah Hayes - Minnesota State Mankato
F Drew LeBlanc - St. Cloud
D Shayne Taker - Notre Dame
F Rylan Schwartz - Colorado College

and F Ryan Walters - Nebraska-Omaha (from what I know/have heard, there are only a handful of NHL teams looking at him right now, but since he currently leads the nation in scoring, I've included him)
Interested to hear what HFBers perceive the value of the above to be if you had to put it in terms of comparing to a draft pick. I know it's not an easy comparator, but would put in perspective for readers the potential upside of these guys.

So...for instance, would we think of Danny Dekeyser as a 2nd rnder in terms of value (early 2nd or llate 2nd?) or what where would you place him?
