Your not an NHL scout so your opinion doesn't matter at all and you probably dont even know anything about them. Either way it's to early to tell who will be the better player but Hall was selected 1st overall for a reason.
That's why I hate it when people say "xxx will be better than yyy. I know it!"

If they are prospects, then no, you don't know. Not even the scouts do. With how talented both Hall and Seguin are, either could become the better player. But Hall was obviously viewed by scouts as the better prospect, seeing as how the center starved Oilers picked him over Seguin.

Until they play a few seasons and Seguin moves up to be a first line center (if he proves he can), then comparing who's the better player is impossible.
