Recruiting Millenials - are we making too big of a deal out of it?

It seems there's a lot of internet chatter going on regarding the importance of recruiting Millenials. While I think it's important to have a diverse workforce, are we making too big of a deal out of this topic?

Millenials have great tech skills - and an awesome understanding of social networking. However, are Gen Xers and Boomers really such dinosaurs that the proverbial work world will stop rotating on its axis if we don't have a bunch of 20-somethings on staff?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we shouldn't hire Millenials - we should. But we can't forget that just like every generation before them in their 20s, they still have a lot to learn before they can take over the world.
