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
That's ridiculous.

One guy plays 20 minutes a night and he's a 6-7 defenseman and nothing more
One guy comes in at 17 minutes a night and he's a 3-4 guy?

Where does that come from?
