from Greg Wyshnski of ESPN,

So expectations were adjusted and the interest started to build, Federico said.

"We weren't sure what the landscape was going to be. But we've been pretty encouraged," the agent said. "The interest has been good. We feel pretty confident that he's going to get a deal before training camp here. It's going to take some time to shake out. Hopefully we know more this week."

Federico is confident that DeKeyser will have a deal in place before training camps open next month. It could be in the range of a $1 million "show me" contract, as DeKeyser attempts to rebuild his reputation.

"It'll be a lower money deal, but it'll be a chance to showcase himself outside of Detroit," Federico said. "We kind of look at him as a Jack Johnson type, where he had to kind of reinvent himself and play at these lower numbers. But [Jack] is getting more years out of his career having done it. Danny has to reestablish himself."

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
