Perhaps there is. Maybe we could look at who plays the most for more successful teams, takes harder matchups, and contributes to a more efficient penalty kill.

In the absence of that, though, my gut tells me Hamhuis is right there in Hannan territory, with one or maybe two seasons separating them. Keep in mind that with the number of players that have existed throughout history, it's feasible moving up a couple hundred spots could take 2 seasons.
