Same reason everyone wanted us to take the "smart" choice and choose a Dman instead of RNH and Yakupov, which were safe choices.
bang on, dude!! that's exactly what's going on here. true, we'd be sitting fine and dandy right now with Seguin, Landeskog and Galchenyuk/Murray, but Hall and Yak were more proven at the time, and, while Lando may have been equally valued, RNH was the centre that we needed.

we made the right choices, but the other choices would have been good also (tho, with Hall/Seguin, i think Hall is and will prove to be much better)
