It'll be interesting to see how DeKeyser handles that Edmonton offer. It would be nice to do that, but I think anybody with a brain realizes that they're probably not ready for that sort of thing in their rookie year. If a team can actually offer you that as a rookie, what sort of D-core can they put around you? I think it's one of those things that sounds overwhelmingly positive until you think about it, and then it becomes kind of negative in some ways.
It is also basically an outright lie considering Smid and Petry are the top pair as far as I know.
