I don't get it. There's only so many ways this can play out:

1) He gets a shot in the top six (God forbid) and inevitably fails badly.

2) He either immediately or later on gets assigned to the fourth line which either means our best fourth liner in Hall gets displaced since VV is a center. Which is bad because Hall is our only quality fourth liner and is great at face-offs. Or VV gets shifted to an unnatural wing position and chances are he looks like either a horrible player or marginal player at best while taking up spots of our own players who could fill that position.

3) He gets signed to just sit in the press box for the entirety of the season minus a game or two. A la Hal Gill.

4) Or he gets released relatively quickly which makes all of this rather pointless.
