I don't see Fowler and Vatanen as being mutually exclusive. You need more than one puck mover. By "puck mover" I don't necessarily mean a skater, but you would like at least one person in each pairing who is good at getting the puck out of the defensive zone somehow (whether it be the pass, the chip, or skating it out). Honestly, I don't think we have enough puck movement. We have Fowler. And that's pretty much it. Sbisa can move, but has tunnel vision. Allen and Souray are pretty slow and can't pass. Beauchemin is meh. Lydman is passable.

On the PP, they also play complementary styles on the point. One can be a setup man/rover. The other would be a more traditional quarterback with a big shot. Vatanen is also a right shot.
