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.
VandeVelde has been very good for OKC as of late.
