VV doesn't really offer anything. He's never going to make the Oilers, so if this is an audition to see if he's worth keeping in the system, it's a stupid one. His player type is eminently replaceable with an AHL contract to a previously undrafted but good two-way college center.
So we want to reassess Lander after returning from injury for 1 game in OKC? He's played 4 games down there and missed a number of games due to injury and yesterday was his first game in almost 3 weeks.
