Pipe dream. Nice of him to agree to a meeting though.

Agreed
Not really sure what we have to offer him compared to playing for his home team in Detroit or accepting a personal offer from a hockey legend in Tampa.
But nice that he is hearing us out indeed.

A chance to develop with a bunch of other NCAA prospects? That could be the pitch. We have Arnold, Gaudreau, Gilles, Jankowski, Agostino, Hanowski, Larson, Deblouw, Ramage. We probably have more college prospects than any other team.

Thats not a bad angle.

All evidence points to him being a huge Detroit fan, and already tight-knit with the organization.

Would be a nice pick-me-up after watching our Captain walk out the door though.

Kind of a pipe dream probably.
Little to no chance he signs in Calgary. The only pitch we could give him, is that he'll be playing in the NHL in a top four role by next week lol.

That would be the best pitch yeah.
And wow we love some college hockey all off a sudden.
I still don't think it matches Daryl Sutter's love for WHL players when he was here but the current management team sure is trying.

It would be a bright stop in a dark world for Flames fans...

If Feaster can pull this off, and land a solid return for JayBow, people might start liking him again... I really do believe his hands were completely tied with the Iggy trade... Can't get to much value when your player really wants 1 team.

That might be worth more than most think. Everyone's saying Detroit, but they're not exactly an organization known for giving prospects a good chance to shine lately. There's obviously at least a sliver of mutual interest since they agreed to a meeting.

You're right that he didn't have a lot of options but its obvious his plan backfired on him when Iginla didn't want to waive to Boston and he was forced to go hat in hand to Pitt and send him there..

We'd probably offer him the most playing time out of any other team given the current situation. At least we have that going for us.

Fair question. I'm assuming they will say trade the face of the franchise was time demanding/exhausting. (I still think they should have had other reps in on this earlier.... Conroy for example.)

That's actually big for NCAA and European guys. The only way they get those bonuses is to play.

Its how the Oilers got Schultz so I guess it matters, the difference is DeKeyser is he already has strong ties with another organization.

We shall see.

If he signs with us he can have my sister!!

Not likely although he would get ice time here, but even at that there are probably better teams where he could crack the roster.

They've been interested since last year when it looked like DD would leave college early.
