It will be funny if he signs with a team other than Detroit. The Detroit fans will riot on here.

I would have to agree... Fedorov and Datysuk? I'll take Yzerman and Lidstrom any day of the week. As a Blues fan playing against these guys, I'll take Yzerman and Lidstrom over any other center and defender that I have seen. The two best all around players that I have seen play the game. That is my opinion, but they could both do it all and in any situation they were or could have been the cream of the crop. They were team players and sacrificed for the team regardless of stats.

St. Louis would love to have DeKeyser. Place to play next to Pietrangelo for the taking. Playoff contention. Looking for a top 4-6 role player just like him for our defense.

It will be funnier when the Blues miss the playoffs this year.

It's quite possible he could sign with another team, And no we Detroit fans will not riot we have way to much class for that, DeKeyser will go to a team that he can make the most Impact now as a player and If that's Detroit or not we shall see here In about 2 or 3 days from now.

If people want a good write up on him, look at mlive.com today. Andy Murray talks about him and his development.

I've said multiple times that I fully expect him to sign with the Wings, just some of you are going a bit overboard, and some Wing fans have even said that.

If he doesn't, **** happens. Our defense is currently ranked 7th in the league, so we must be doing something right.

I think several RW fans have admitted that they're touchy after being certain Suter was their tailor-made replacement for Lidstrom..and they ended up his third choice. After that, it became "Well, we'll get Weber next year, then" and that fell through.

I think they're ready for something to go right, although if it were me, I would trade some of these flashy European recent 2nd round forwards for someone like Yandle and be done with it, but that's just me.

If only Ken Holland had your GMing abilities... imagine how successful the Wings could have been these past 20 years!

The third choice is a reference to something Poile said the day Suter signed in MN, "Ryan told us last night that he was deciding between coming back or signing in Minnesota, and that he needed to sit down with his family and decide what was best for them."

The Weber thing isn't anything scientific, I'm just saying what DET fans were saying on the board.

I'm not trying to rip DET fans, I'm just saying..I think that's why some are being sort of weird about this DD situation.

Danny DeKeyser sure would look great in a St. Louis Blues Uniform. Get R Done Stillman & Armstrong...

I'd like him on the Wings, but this whole thing has been way over-hyped. The kid is going to be good, however, I think some people need to calm down. He's essentially a "free" player, so I can understand the want for him, but sheesh...

Agreed, i would like to see him in Detroit because he has solid potential, but I wouldn't care at all if he signed somewhere else. Honestly there is no guarantee he would be better then any of our current D at the moment.

I doubt it. I think most Detroit fans are in paranoid freakout mode right now. Suter-itis.

No we won't. There might be a overly vocal minority that do, but the majority will be just fine.

For what it's worth, Dan is watching the Leafs game alongside Nonis right now. Doubt it means anything though, he's in town to meet his agents/other GMs.

When they showed Nonis is the first, Im like where's Dekeyser? Then he just showed up..

He's in Toronto, he was invited. It hurts nothing to see what the Leafs have to offer. Not getting any hopes up but it would be nice. Maybe he too can stand in creases and have the other team use him as a human deflection....

I think every team wants to get him because hes sought after and can be useful but I really dont think any team that doesnt get him is going to be kicking themselves that much. Picking up a solid player for free is always nice, down the line you can always turn that player into something at the deadline or something.

Dekeyser isnt stepping into anyones top 4 and making a huge difference right now

Why would any college FA sign with Detroit, so they can get stuck in the AHL for half their career?

He was at the ACC tonight with Leafs management. Im guessing the Leafs are probably on his radar.

I don't think he'll sign in Toronto but it would be nice to get a free player.

My optimism on NCAA free agents has been tempered since Matt Gilroy.

He could be a good NHL player though.

Considering he's very likely to start in the AHL, I think the Marlies being in Toronto is a good reason to consider them

I'm not getting my hopes up with him signing in TO, but the guy has a sick flow and would fit well with Bozie and Kostka.
