I'd consider Hamhuis elite, as in top 15-20 after last year. Ditto Edler. If we can get a top 10 defender, awesome, but I think our structure is fine with Garrison, Bieksa, Ballard (cap dependant) and up and comers like Tanev, Corrado, Connauton and possibly Sauve in place. I just wouldn't want to surrender assets from our rosters or our thin prospect cupboard to the tune of what would have to be paid.

An elite playmaking winger...yeah I agree there, I'd want to focus on that as part of the Luongo trade, even if that brings in futures/roster players to fill the hole we create there. But Hansen is looking ready for a top six spot after last year, IMO, and he seems as good a playmaker as anyone not named Hank on this team...
