Best Star (2008)

Brenden Morrow

Once upon a time he sheepishly accepted the team's "C" from longtime icon Mike Modano. But this spring he unceremoniously shoved ol' Mo' to the third line and clearly ascended to one of our best two-way athletes. In Dallas' spirited three-series playoff run, captain Morrow was like the legendary Mark Messier, physically checking opponents off their skates at one end and using his finesse to slip pucks past goalies at the other. Modano is the franchise's all-time leading scorer, and there's a spot reserved for his No. 9 in American Airlines Center's rafters, but the face of the franchise now belongs to Morrow.
