Gaustad yielded a 1st because his combination of size, faceoffs, and PK minutes is a very rare and valuable commodity. What Morrow brought last year is not a rare or valuable commodity, so if you think he'd return a 1st based on what Gaustad returned, I think you're mistaken, and I'll bet your fellow Stars fans do too.

It would be a total non-starter from this end.
