A 75-point player in his prime, I just feel his prime will be longer than the 2-3 seasons Morrow's was. Making him ultimately a more valuable asset.

I don't think it's unfair to say Seguin is the better player at this point.
Morrow never reached 75 pts and he only reached over 50 pts 3 times 74, 65 and 56. He has never been close to a PPG player.
Also, it's a weird comparison since the two are nothing alike.
Morrow was a glorified grinder who used his physicality to intimidate the opposition, he was never much of a skilled guy. Hall has more skill in his pinky finger than Morrow has in his entire body.
I would agree that Hall has average hockey sense and in fact, it's probably below average compared to other top tier talents but he will definitely be a bigger point producer than somebody like Morrow due to his superior offensive skillset.

I do think it's very possible that Seguin will be the better overall player going forward but i would take Hall on my team ten times out of ten.
He's the perfect fit for the team that is being built here.
