We've got: Desharnais, Plekanec, Eller and Galchenyuk is on the way. Undoubtedly Benn would be our #1, however we'd be giving up our #1 d-man for a relatively marginal (and possibly temporary) upgrade in our centre position.
I don't disagree, but Stars fans didn't start this thread.

Dallas is having a hard time signing Benn. You think they want to add 5M a year from Plek and then have a hard time signing Subban instead?

It's financial non-sense without the habs taking substantial salary back. At least 6M. We are already buying back Gomez and have some lame ducks. We can't afford salary dump.
The Stars are in a good financial position and can certainly afford both Subban and Plekanec, considering the substantial salary coming off this summer from Morrow, Ryder, and Roy. It may not be wise to invest in Plekanec instead of an upcoming 2013 UFA, however.
