Crew Interested in Victorine?

Found this article while on the Columbus Crew boards on bigsoccer reading their pregame thread for the game this weekend. Interesting reading, apparently Crew coach, Sigi Schmid, is looking to pull in some of his former UCLA players, including current Wizards, Sasha Victorine.

Honestly this trade makes no sense at all for the Wizards. First, the Wizards are in the middle of a playoff race with the Crew. Both are attempting to end a two year playoff drought. Trading a player like Victorine late in a good season would be stupid. Victorine is leading the team in assists this season and has been a major asset for the Wizards. Second, I'm not sure who the Wizards would get in return. Eddie Gaven? Ned Grabavoy? Andy Herron? Kei Kamara? Those players all have their upside, but I'd rather have Victorine then those 4 right now. Down the stretch I think that Victorine will be a lot more important for us.
