I'd say St. Louis is the biggest snub, then Giroux.
I'd maybe look at Seabrook over Vlasic or Hamhuis, but those were safe choices.
If they have trouble scoring goals (which is hard to fathom), then certainly you are going to hear criticism about not taking more natural wingers.
I certainly don't get taking a guy like Benn over Hall, but as many have commented, they are risk averse, and the thought that one mistake in a tension-filled game could cost a medal leads them away from Hall.
It's always been "play it safe" and I don't think that would ever change.
