I don't really get why you'd be disappointed in Vatanen. His offensive abilities are top notch. He skates well. Makes good decisions more often than not. He's flat out excellent on the PP. Sure, he's not great defensively, but who among us was expecting that? Vatanen has never been touted as a two-way stud. More than that, as Duckie said, he's not a finished product. There are going to be growing pains, as he adjusts to the AHL, and then the NHL after. I think it was Paul who said that the skill differences between the AHL and the FEL weren't all that great, but that the leagues were just different. Personally, I think he's adjusted as well as can be expected, considering. One bad game doesn't change any of this, it just highlights the point that he's a work in progress.
