I'm not piling on.

I'm saying that the supporting cast without Vanek & Miller is really, really bad and all Vanek and Miller can do is elevate them to a mediocre team. That isn't a reflection on Vanek and Miller, but on the team around them.

I just would prefer to try and get as much as you can for them now, hopefully bottom out and pick top 3 the next two years, and then hopefully things start blossoming from there.
