Predators making strong push for NCAA FA d-man Danny DeKeyser

as discussed in another thread, Predators are considered one of about 4-5 "frontrunner" teams.

Don Meehan was in Nashville yesterday to meet with the Predators and Oilers, both of which are on the list.

Kevin Wilson reports that Trotz and the rest of Preds' brass made the trip up to Toronto to make their pitch.

It's expected that since all teams can only offer the same ELC, it's going to be perks\playing environment that woos DeKeyser. It's given that he wants a guaranteed roster spot in the NHL, which I think they're likely advertising that second pairing spot with Klein as his, if he wants it.

DeKeyser is a big, steady two-way defenseman in the vein of Dan Hamhuis, but a little bigger. Very good first pass, great hockey sense and stick. Can play on the PP, but his real value to us would be his stay at home skills.
