Considering VV might very well be a non NHL player going by player history and the fact that he was still a free agent he pretty much is coming in and taking a roster spot from a bunch of players that we already had in the organization. It's more about organizational loyalty and the fact that VV doesn't seem like an upgrade over anything we have.

That and he's supposed to be a center so either he's going to displace Hall or get shifted to a position he's not naturally in.
