Who cares about a lesser team? A more indicative index would be to look at who he's playing with and what situations he's being put in.

Hall has
a) more offensively dynamic linemates (RNH/Eberle > Bergeron/Marchand)
b) more PP minutes (2:27 for Seguin, 3:03 for Hall)
c) worse QualComp to deal with (0.03 for Hall, 0.057 for Seguin = 140 forwards separate Hall and Seguin in terms of the competition level of the opposition they faced at even strength)
d) more TOI in general (18:13 for Hall vs 16:56 for Seguin)

He's actually being given more opportunity to thrive offensively and produce - which he has to his credit. I think NHL fans are cognizant of this, but the gap that should exist between Hall and Seguin in terms of offensive production given the opportunities that Hall sees just isn't there.
