I've never really understood the "niche" philosophy. How many players do we see in the NHL who are strict PP specialists? With such limited roster space, teams can't afford to have players who are worthless outside of a very specific, very limited role.
Furthermore, is that really going to help Vatanen develop?
"Hey kid, we want you to improve your defensive game... but in the meantime we're going to give you 4 minutes a game of PP time, and bench you the rest of the game. I hope you learn by osmosis."
I find the harder I work the more luck I seem to have.
