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.

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.
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.
