Then why isn't Wally West the Flash, or John Stewart the main Green Lantern?
Because that's not what Geoff Johns grew up with.

The moves to bring back Hal Jordan, Barry Allen, and the pre-Crisis Legion of Super-Heroes make perfect sense when you think about what DC was publishing when Geoff Johns was a little kid buying comics at the 7-11. Today's DCU is based on Johns' memories of the Bronze Age.
It really doesn't since much of his comics exposure happened after CoiE and that his favorite Flash is Wally West not Barry Allen. And of course ignores the fact that Didio is the driving force behind the return of Barry Allen and Hal Jordan and the uncrippling of Barbara Gordon.

Give it 15 to 20 years and you'll likely see DC revert to something like the post Crisis era; by that time, the kids who grew up in that time frame will be in charge while the ones now at the top will be fading out.
That is Geoff Johns in a nutshell, isn't it?
