I don't think DeSantis was going to make any headway in the Jets organization at the NHL level -- we're sort of jammed up at D with some prospects in the pipeline they're pretty high on -- so I'd guess it was the latter. Good luck to him, he had a great bounce-back season for the AHL IceCaps after almost not finding a place to play last year.
