Vey may be competent at defense, but lacks the high end defensive abilities (and faceoff ability) that Stoll brings.

Having Stoll on the roster gives Kopitar and Richards line more offensive zone faceoffs. We've gotten away from the Terry Murray system of using Kopitar to shut down opposing top lines, which I believe is a better use of resources.
I don't think he was implying that Stoll would be coming out of the lineup; he was saying Vey would be the 3C while Stoll would be the 4C.
