Edmonton drafting Yakupov, having Eberle emerge as a star player and having a ton of winger prospects isn't something that was the case in 2010. Having 2 star wingers and 2 star centers may be preferable to 3 star wingers and 1 star center, especially if the difference between the star winger and star center is small.

Seguin was snakebit in the playoffs but played great, I don't know what you are talking about. You could argue for him being the 2nd best forward after Peverley. And obviously he's gonna have a lower point per game average than Hall, Hall plays on the kid line with no defensive responsibilities and no pressure while Seguin plays on a highly defensive team gunning for the cup and has a coach that's on him about everything. They have different strengths and all but overall they're extremely close and Seguin plays the more important position.
I think Seguin is a great player and its hard to debate whos better between him ad Hall, but you cant make the argument he is a star center. He has played very little there and there is a huge difference between center in junior and center in the nhl. It is perfectly okay to say he's a great RW but cant say for sure hes a great center yet
