He was good for a team that had no business being in the playoffs last year. The fact that they won their division last year is only an indication as to how bad the overall play was in the Southeast. If Versteeg is a key cog to your offense, you probably don't have a good team. And I'm not completely biased, I consider guys like Read to be in a similar mold.
A) Comparing him to the likes of Towes, Kane, Hossa, and Sharp isn't really fair.
B) Florida took New Jersey to seven games. They had as much business being there as we did.

Speaking of selling players low, we did exactly that with JvR. I like Schenn, but had we traded JvR after 2010, we could gotten a possible #1 in return for him.
