Hansen + Raymond has been a decent basis in past discussions, but I don't think it's worth the risk imo. He's on an expiring contract and will likely want more than he's worth. And there's no guarantee that he's able to maintain his reckless style of play for much longer. Not that he shouldn't command that much from prospective teams, I just don't think we should be the highest bidder if the Sharks looked to shop Clowe.
While I get that it's risky to trade 2 40-50 point players for 1 50 point player (on an expiring deal), we can mitigate that risk by either acquiring that 2nd tweeter player in a Luongo trade or replacing a guy like Hansen/Higgins in a potential Luongo trade.

Also in regards to him maintaining his play, the same could be said about a guy like Kesler or Burrows but it doesn't necessarily detract from their value.
