One of the points of this is that he has the speed to be everywhere on the ice.
So, respectfully, your analogy is incorrect.
And how many of those top scoring centres are guys who you would classify as "two-way" players? You specifically mention putting Hall in a role where he has to shoulder more defensive responsibility, so I'm sure you can understand why I don't have him pegged as a Stamkos or Malkin type.
