I'd do Kadri for Morrow but Toronto might not. I'd also do Morrow for Colborne. Or in a package to get Luke Schenn. I think top pairing dman is a higher priority than a scorer because it will be harder to find. A top six forward WILL be had by next season as long as they are willing, which I'm sure they will be. Stars are loaded with 2nd-3rd pairing D, and managing to find a potential legit #1-2 D isn't so easy. Suter would fit the bill but probably a long shot to convince him to come to Dallas.

As for Benn and Modano, I always did like Modano of course, he was a great player. But he was never my favorite, as Benn is. The only other favorite player I've ever had in sports was Vince Young at Texas, I rarely get enamored with any one player on my favorite teams. Think Modano was a hair overrated. Not sure overrated is the right word because I don't want to diminish his accomplishments...But I do think Benn is going to be a better player.
