I think they're easily separable as abstracts, the question is how "correct" you can be in how you consider the values, because we aren't really assessing value in relation to any prospective trade, it's simply an attempt at assessing a player's contextually-independent value. It's not really any different than debating which of two players are better, only you're also weighing contract, age, and potential.
