The concept of synergy doesn't work in pro sports, except perhaps basketball.

In the NFL you can't win without a QB. You don't trade a franchise QB.

In baseball, you can't win without good pitching. Sure, you can try, but ask the Mets what a great lineup without solid pitching does. The '96-'03 Yankees proved this. The lineup can be interchangeable save for one or two key pieces. You win with pitching.

In hockey, you can't win without a good goalie. You can try, but the Rangers teams of the not so distant past show that no matter how good the rest of the team is, a bad goalie dooms you.

You can argue synergy all you want, but it can't happen by weakening the key position on the team.
