Playing in the NHL is never a guarantee. Vatanen needs to show that his addition will make the Ducks better, and that he deserves a spot ahead of a current rostered player. He just hasn't done that yet. Anaheim thinks highly of him, though. They'll give him a shot when they feel he is ready, or an injury gives him an opportunity.
