I honestly think he didn't make his mind up until last night possibly this morning. I really think the ones it came down to were Nashville, Detroit and Edmonton. Anaheim and St.Louis could make very big pitches to him also, so I would say they're right behind those 3. MLive is reporting these teams were in the sweepstakes:

Toronto, Anaheim, St. Louis, Edmtonton, Philadelphia, Ottawa and Nashville are believed to be the other teams that were in the running for DeKeyser's services.
The only thing I wish he would've done was just announce the team he choose at noon. He made everyone sit here for the past 4 1/2 hours refreshing their page, checking twitter, and looking for anything to give them a sign. That was ridiculous but for all we know, it could've been his agent or the Detroit franchise that made him delay the announcement.
