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.
Lander JUST got back from an injury, he's played one game so far.

I don't mind giving VV a shot, it might be his last opportunity to show his stuff with the big club.
