That's called hyperbole. It was an exaggeration meant to show that Vatanen doesn't belong right now, because he can't be relied on defensively. You're taking him too literally.

Vatanen improving his defense is assumed. He's a talented prospect, and his coach has already said he's improving. Whether or not he improves enough to be a valid NHL player is another matter. Who knows? I think he will.
