DeKeyser and his agent were like "well we have 12 offers that guarantee I'll be on the NHL club's roster. So we're not signing any contract that doesn't guarantee a spot in the NHL."
So they ended up guaranteeing DeKeyser a roster spot in Detroit but could not guarantee ice time. Worked out just fine, Babcock will play him if he's good enough, we know that based on the ice time Lashoff has gotten this season. Smith has also always been in the lineup when healthy. Oh and Big E had developed into our #1 d-man with Babcock as coach.
Nope. DeKeyser decided earlier but he wanted time to personally call all of the other teams who he wasn't going to.
