Hamilton with krecji is good because as hamilton has shown already, hes a better offensive player then chara. Putting 2 players with great vision on the ice together from the point could be very productive, especially with hamilton continuing to find lanes to get his shot through.
You make a lot of good points here. Seguin's ability to control the puck in traffic is an issue, and I haven't really heard it mentioned. Ultimately, I think Spooner will help this PP before season's end.
