DeKeyser Possible Nickname; Trade Speculations


So with Dan DeKeyser joining us, as is customary, I believe we should start discussing some possible nicknames for our lovely community here to use in reference to him. Am I right? Here's my two cents:

DK - Danny Kong.

I believe it's fitting. I mean, it's pretty perfect: he's a big, physical player - just like the classic video game gorilla we've all cherished over the years. Plus it plays on his name. And dare I say that the two resemble one another a wee bit?

Need I say more? Imagine what our dear Josh Howard could do with that!

I also have been thinking about the possible trade options opened up to Kenny now that we've boosted our D-line. I think we're all aware that KH & Co. would love to add Keith Yandle, but according to MyNHLTradeRumors.com, the Wings have also shown some interest in John-Michael Liles. As much as Yandle appeals to me, I don't know that he's worth what the Wings would have to give up (White and/or Quincey plus a high-level prospect and maybe a 2nd round pick? I'm probably way off). I think it's definitely in the Wings' best interest to go after Liles. He's cheaper in salary (4 years at just over $15 mil) and would add a little veteran savvy to a very young blue-line. Plus, we could probably get him for White and a pick (maybe undervaluing a little?).

What do you guys think? Approve the nickname? Pursue Liles? Get some Taco Bell?

I think we can all at least agree on the latter...
