Simple. Isshin's story, the Zero Squad, The Spirit King, and Ichigo's role in that still had to be addressed. When he fought Aizen, his strength was far well beyond Yamamoto. For human that had maybe two years of training? That's nuts.
Also, Byakuya's going to die. Kubo was just trolling the fuck outta his fans with "Oh, he's not dead just yet. Someone has to give the 'AVENGE US' speech. That's out the way now? Okay, he's dead."
