Telos is dead on with this. VV has given DL no option but to keep him in LA. VV is the reason that Moreau was waived when MR, WM came back off the IR. VV will likely be the cause of the next guy to get sent down/waived. who that may be is unknown at present, but the kid has earned his spot on the roster. months ago both DL and TMu said publicly they want the young guys like VV and Lokti to "make it a difficult decision" for them. well they both have done that, obvioulsy to different degrees.
they both are learning the speed and pace of the NHL presently. both of them have shown signs of being outmatched and playing behind the opponent, but at this point its expected. it isn't every game and it isn't often, but they have both had games they both show they are rookies.
VV has given DL a BIG (imo) option here. the kid is showing great poise at both ends of the ice. to the point i could see DL entertaining an offer on JJ. DL at this point could make a move with JJ, VV or AMart depending on what the return is. not saying that he would, but it is possible now when you consider the possibilities.
VV WILL NOT be back in MAN at this point
