That's six #1 D's on respective NHL club.
Kronwall, Edler, and Hedman aren't really #1 D.
Hedman this season yes, and if his offense continues to develope possibly top 5 defenseman. OEL is kind of iffy, not quite a #1 D yet, should be before Sochi. Edler is a 2/3 at best, Kronwall is about the same, Enstrom is a #1/great #2. EK is the best on the planet if he recovers, which we don't know if he will.

I'd say Karlsson and potentially Hedman could be better than anyone Canada has, but Weber and Doughty barring injuries would be safer, OEL, and Enstrom are about on par with Letang, Keith, and Petro at this point, and I'd take any combination of the bottom 4 defensemen for Canada over Edler and Kronwall.
