Brendon Nash traded for Jason DeSantis (NHL rights have now been traded)
 
Brendon Nash will now play for the San Antonio Rampage. In return, Hamilton gets d-man Jason DeSantis.

This move only affect Nash's AHL status, his NHL rights are still owned by the Habs.

Weird.

o....k....

The guy they got is a RH shot, that's the main thing I take out of this.

Odd move, Nash hasn't played all that well but hopefully DeSantis is better.

Chris Cutter 01-03-2013 04:29 PM

Nick DeSantis is reunited with his son! Nah but really I thought the player coming back was a forward or something, such a lateral move.

Gauthier :shakehead
Gainey :shakehead

Desantis had 41 points in 66 games last season.

MrNasty 01-03-2013 04:38 PM

Sounds like a precursor to a real trade that will happen whenever the NHL resumes.

RampageNate 01-03-2013 04:46 PM

Rampage fan/blogger here. Was hoping to find a quick scouting report on Nash.

DeSantis had been relegated to a healthy scratch on most nights. He's a good PP player and decent offensively (though, he hasn't done much this year). He is, however, small and pretty awful defensively.

I hope he turns it around for you guys. He was, by all accounts, great last year in St. Johns. But he just never put it all together down here.

Don't know anything about DeSantis. He seems to be good offensively. He had 28 points on the powerplay last season, so hopefully he'll bolster our pathetic powerplay.

Thanks for the report of DeSantis.

Nash is 6'3, and he knows how to use that size. He's very physical and strong on his skates. He just returned after missing last season from shoulder surgery. He's just shaking off the rust now.

He is bad in his own zone, but he does provide offensive ability. However he's definitely started to look better in his own zone as of late. He skates well, moves the puck with speed, and makes a good outlet pass. He's got a great slapshot too. Nash has good physical tools, but isn't necessarily the smartest player. Fun player to watch when he's on his game though.

Both players needed a change of scenery. If DeSantis works out in Hamilton, he might improve our PP and solve some of our offensive woes.

ChoseLa 01-03-2013 05:09 PM

Nash was a good overral defencemen before getting injured, had an NHL game before his injury, looked bad. Still a good one.

Et le But 01-03-2013 05:23 PM

Never really believed Nash had NHL upside but he's better than he looked most of this season. Last year was good when he played a safe game, is somewhat physical and has a decent shot. Was an awful decision maker this year.

Ok, so they want Beaulieu, Tinordi & Co. to get used to play with a guy like Weber or Kaber :laugh:

Watsatheo 01-03-2013 05:55 PM

Upgraded offensively too. Nash has 1g/8pts but this new guy has 2g/9pts.

Le Tricolore 01-03-2013 06:17 PM

I read "Jason Demers" at first and was elated, and then I realized I was mildly ********.

"Okay..."

zzoo 01-04-2013 09:37 AM

Like a trade in Jr, Nash still belongs to Habs, right ?

Sounds like Bergevin was bored and wanted something to justify his salary with the lockout.

Worst trade in Habs history

Not like "a trade in jr", though in the sense that it's a trade in the AHL... and while the Habs still technically hold his NHL rights, teams don't normally trade one of their AHL players to another NHL team's development system if they have any intention of ultimately retaining that player. I would take this as essentially the Habs trading Nash to Florida. They can't officially do that, of course, due to the lockout...
