In spite of all the hoopla to the contrary, I don't see free agents clamoring to come here either unless they're already established and the Wings are willing to pay market value. Dekeyser could have gone anywhere, and it was known that the Wings were always in the front of the pack, but even still the Wings brass had to guarantee that Dekeyser would play on the Red Wings, not Grand Rapids. So make no mistake about it, ice time and role is important. If other players see you jerking your prospects around forever in favor of Samuelsson or Cleary, then when the next Justin Schultz becomes available do you think he'll consider Detroit? I don't, even if he does do you think his agent will? Not me
