I think you are wrong on value though. I think Byfuglien will be cheapest one

Steeger I think will end up in Pittsburgh for there 1st rounder. I dont think the Pens can continue to try and plug in guys like Fedetnoko in there top 6 and get away with it. It hurt them this year
I wouldn't use him as a center, but like I said, I think his versatility is an asset.

I think the hype around Byfuglien's playoffs is going to drive his value higher than Versteeg's.

With Pittsburgh's prospect pool drying up considerably, I don't foresee them moving their 1st rounder. Consecutive SCF appearances, one cup win, and they were 1 game away from the ECF this year. I don't think they're looking to make any desperation moves.
