Okay, I recalculated this, and you're right, I was misinformed. He does indeed get more points by doing two 4Ts.
But the point still stands: a fall on a quad salchow is worth more than a "meh" triple lutz. And didn't Hanyu beat a nearly-clean Patrick Chan at that same Grand Prix Final, by 5 points TES, in the LP, despite the fall?

Actually as I remember Patrick did 4T2T instead 4T3T, but still Patrick has a little easier rest of program because, Hanyu can do 2x 3A while Patrick is having 2x 3 Ltz + 3A in first part

That's why I said "nearly clean." I know Patrick mucked the 3T and didn't do a second 3A. Maybe my brain is too 6.0 and I should just go the way of the dinosaurs, but to me doubling a 3T (especially on the end of a quad) is a lesser problem than falling on your opening quad.
Even with Patrick's errors, it shouldn't enough for Hanyu to beat him by 5 points in the FS TES.
