Yesterday the Carolina Hurricanes met with college free agent Danny DeKeyser. DeKeyser is a defenseman for Western Michigan and is being coveted by every team in the NHL.

Last year, the Canes used Rod Brind'Amour and Ron Francis to sell Jeremy Welsh on joining the Canes. It is thought that they did the same thing to DeKeyser yesterday.

DeKeyser is expected to make a decision by the end of the week.

Well every other team has met with him, seems like, and they all feel like they have the upper hand in getting him. I'm not going to hold my breath. Probably the only thing we have to offer him is playing time.

If the Lightning can land Andrej Sustr then certainly we can land DeKeyser.

From ESPN Rumor Mill:

Since DeKeyser is said to want play in the NHL immediately, the promise of a lineup spot right off the bat could go a long way in wooing the young defenseman.


Don't know how many teams could offer playing time immediately, but surely it can't be many.

That might take his favorite team Detroit out of it.

Boys I see Carolina as being a real possibility at landing Danny, who is supposedly the next big thing.

And boy do we need some young talent. Outside of Rask and Murphy, I don't think we have any high talent prospects in the organization.

It's official, DeKeyser has signed with the Red Wings. It was his dream to play for his favorite team and now he will get the chance.

Dekeyser was never going to pick anyone but Detroit, that was as close to a lock as you can get.
