over the past 2 years, and are finally starting to show hints of all-star ability. I still wouldn't call them fast, but they've turned into somewhat physical, very gritty players who perform well in the playoffs. Even when they sometimes lack offensive consistency, they're still hard working players in every aspect of the game.

Why would you trade that? Two years ago when they were slow and getting pushed around, maybe, but now?
And their contracts are peanuts for great 2nd line players.
