I hear you, but here are listed Vatanen's achievements from his three seasons in FEL (which is on par or better than AHL):

2009-2010 30 points in 55gp
SM-liiga Bronze Medal

2010-2011 31 points in 52gp
SM-liiga All-Star Team
SM-liiga Best Defenseman "Pekka Rautakallio Award"
SM-liiga Best Plus/Minus (+30)
SM-liiga Player of the Month (Nov)

2011-2012 42 points in 49gp
SM-liiga All-Star Team
SM-liiga Best Defenseman "Pekka Rautakallio Award"
SM-liiga Champion

So my guess still is, there is no need for a visit in the AHL for the mighty 44. And I would even go as far as to say that he doesn't need top PP time to pot 25ish points in his rookie season. But of course that would probably limit his goal totals somewhere below ten.
