I don't think it's the same thing, though.
It's not as if Flash and Versteeg are producing much here, anyway. They're only top-line players on bad teams.

Take away the first 20-25 games of the season last year, and that line has done a lot of nothing. It's about production or lack thereof.

Maybe not trade both, but one of them should go at least. We have way too many small, flashy, cutesy players in our top-6. We need to get bigger through the draft, trades, FA's, etc. and get some value out of a couple of these guys on the current team.
