We study the Haffnian and Haldane-Rezayi quantum Hall wave functions and their quasihole excitations by means of their "root configurations," and point out a close connection between these seemingly different states. For both states, we formulate a "generalized Pauli-principle," which makes it possible to count the degeneracies of these states. The connection between these states might elucidate the underlying theory describing the "irrational" Haffnian state.
