Security behind a router?

I just installed VNC on several systems and, remarkably, it
worked quite well with almost no twiddling.
I changed the AuthHosts value to permit only hosts on my local
LAN to connect. (I.e. set it to "-:+192.168".) I assume this
will prevent ALL connections from any outside hosts.
Question: All hosts on the LAN are behind a router. In this
case, is it necessary to go through the pain of setting up SSH?
Or can I safely assume that all traffic between server & clients
will stay behind the router, so there's no way an unfriendly
could snoop them?
