why not?

Vandevelde had a better pre-season and beat out Raffl, McGinn, etc for a spot on the team out of training camp. Just because the others have expectations to be on the team, doesn't mean they should just be given the spot. They had their chance to earn it, and they couldn't do it right now.

It's a long season, so it's not like they won't have the chance to earn that spot back at one point, which I fully expect them to do.
