What's the difference?
Your point doesn't make sense.
Hannan isn't an all star, but he's still a good PK guy who can handle your tough minutes.
Maybe people are overrating Ericsson.
You're really underrating Ericsson -- Hannan has zero ability to play up the roster, he's a #6 or #7 and nothing more. Ericsson has abilities to play top 4 pairing minutes and has shown ability in the past to play against top competition.
Hannan would be fine to play that defensive defensemen role you're wanting, but Ericsson fills the role that we're going to be missing with a #3 or #4 guy. It's two completely different roles and one that Hannan can't handle.
tl;dr Ericsson >>>>>>> Hannan
