Pyatt had good seasons under Vigneault in Vancouver. At that time, he had a share of minutes with top-six players if I remember correctly, but that's not really the point. The point is Vigneault knows Pyatt.
Maybe, but I don't know, who is Pyatt pusing out? Who is AV keeping Pyatt in favor of? Powe? Kreider?

I mean, Pyatt is a NHLer that can fill a number of positions on a NHL team. From my point of view, Pyatt has been kept in favor of players who either where competing for other roles than him (Powe) or players that needed to work on a number of areas of their game (Kreider).
