FWIW, I believe Peter Chiarelli would have picked Seguin either way because while Hall probably would have been more helpful in 2011, PC and the bruins brass LOVE skilled centers and have a tendency to pick centers over wingers because of how they think the game, as well as many scouts projecting Seguin to have the better potential for an overall great career/higher ceiling. None of this is meant to diminish Hall, he's pretty amazing, it's just my logic in the scenario of Boston having the first pick. I've followed PC long enough to know that's what his line of thinking would have been
I don't think Chia would have taken seguin. They had Savard, Bergy, and Krejci at the time, and needed a goal scoring winger, which they got later that day (Horton)
