My 2 cents...
I see you two and raise you two:

1) As they are both very underrated even before one considers the "herp derp colombus lol" factor, it is unlikely anyone would even briefly consider them. (My prediction is that for the remainder of their careers here, much like other guys like Nash, Hejda, and Klesla and even Umberger at times, they're going to be "yeah columbus sucks but those guys are actually decent players" to fans in the Central Division and "lol colombus fail herp derp" to everybody else.)

2) We are acutely aware of what we have with that duo and have absolutely zero interest in breaking it up at any price that's within three or four standard deviations of "fair". Even with all the guys in the minors.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
