Losing Hemsky and Belanger for just a top 1/2D already makes us better.
But you're not going to get that kind of return for those players...nor the other ones you mentioned in the original post.

At best you'll get another 3-4 defenseman to share the role played by Smid-Petry. This player will struggle in a top-pairing role the same way Smid/Petry have and we'll become marginally better off.

Stalberg is like Booth without the size - low IQ player with great wheels. Clarkson is interesting but like you said - it will take an overpay to acquire him. Definitely not worth it. Valuable player that will never be worth the price.
