The Malik Report

Updated 5x at 3:23 PM: Over the last 24 hours, the Free Press's Helene St. James (having spoken with Ken Holland) MLive's Ansar Khan (having spoken with Jim Nill) and the Satellite Hotstove basically dissected the Danny DeKeyser sweepstakes, but TSN's Bob McKenzie posited a pair of Tweets which summarize what we've heard will take place at Newport Sports Management's offices in Mississauga, ON starting on Tuesday:
The Detroit connections are obvious--DeKeyser's from Clay Township, he went to school with Jim Nill's son, Trevor, and Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill helped recruit DeKeyser to Western Michigan University...But I've heard "Wings and Lightning" from the start, and with money being equal here (each and every one of the NHL's 30 teams can offer DeKeyser a "rookie cap max" deal, and nothing more), it's really DeKeyser and Don Meehan's calls as to which team presents DeKeyser with the best opportunity to play NHL hockey ASAP and over the long haul.
Update #4: Hmm...
Update #5: I hope so:

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
