I also don't think there are any huge discrepencies potential wise in this trade. If Hall becomes something like Nash/Iginla and Hamilton becomes something like Weber/Chara... I'll take the Weber/Chara. Same goes for Ovechkin-lite vs PPG well rounded centreman.
Not to mention Edm would STILL have Eberle has an arguable franchise winger to go along with RNH/Seguin up front. Gives them a much more balanced line-up with high potential pieces in really important positions.
It's funny because seguin has never played center in the NHL. Also hall is a better player and was taken ahead of seguin 2 years ago and I doubt Edmonton regrets it, just wait until hall plays a full season. Yakupov for Hamilton is laughable, yakupov is the best prospect in the world, and Hamilton is great but not quite on yakupovs level.
Your second last paragraph was just purely dumb.
