Sounds like budget cuts to me.
It also sounds a lot like the prospect camp they had after the draft.
Vatanen not coming makes sense. If he's definitely not coming to NA this year, and since it's basically like the prospect camp that (I think) he's been to a few times already... what's the point? And besides, it saves the team money on travel costs.
