is icy veins incorrect?

just a question regarding rogues best in slot vs their best stats 

it seems as though say outlaw rogues best stats are versitility and critical strike, yet the best in slot equipment does not reflect that, why do we get gear that has haste on it when its our worst stat? 

and supposedly now because of mythic+ theres no such thing as a hard best in slot? this surely can't be right, stats will still be stats and our best stats will still be our best stats? 

can anyone shed some light on this

BiS lists are really quite silly, mostly to do with Titanforged etc. For the vast majority of situations, your primary stat is the most important one that you can get. This means, for all Rogue specs, that Agility is the main focus - not Crit, not Haste. 

For Outlaw in particular, the values for all secondary stats are very close, which means that small changes in stats are not going to be terribly significant. The list is also a little misleading, because Haste is the most valuable stat to Outlaw Rogues - up until you get enough of it to fill gcds, then you don't need any more at all and its value drops dramatically.

Basically: get what gear you can, don't focus on secondary stats so much as item level / agility. Agi is worth almost twice as much as any other stat.

They aren't wrong so much as they are hamstrung by the fact that anything can potentially be BIS given enough of an ilvl boost via WF\TF.
