But sure Versteeg is worthless.
Yeah, what Kimi said. How is Versteeg worthless? Because he tore his abdominal wall and didn't stand out? Nodl-Richards-Versteeg was by far the best defensive line we put out all season, and they gathered 55 goals between them with a torn wrist, a torn abdomen, and hands that magically turned to stone in the second half of the season.

And, on top of all that, even if Versteeg doesn't live up to our expectations this year, he's an RFA at the season's end, meaning he still has value in a trade/offer sheet.
