I think that Vatanen's best shot at getting some game time would have been last night, with Fowler out sick. Considering Fowler's attributes, it seems to me that Vatanen would have made more sense than Hendry to help make up for the loss of Fowler, since puck movement and offense is really where Vatanen's strengths lie.

Of course, with Vatanen injured that wasn't going to happen, but I think that would have been the type of situation where I believe we'd have seen Vatanen get some ice time.
