I've heard of the 'Deathstar' but don't know anything about them, I assumed it was a term of endearment for the Sage TCX Spey rod, so after seeing your post I looked further into it and your correct it is for a specific rod. It looks like lines in the 525gr+ range are the norm so I would imagine the HM 2 would work.

Yes.
For the "HOT" BC Steelhead runs it may not be a great fit, but for the application your asking about it should work fine.

Plenty of reel for steelhead indeed, be sure to put lots of backing on it so it looks good mounted up.

Granted our MI Kings aren't as big, but when I had one as a sample it handled plenty of 15-25 pound MI Kings. I've landed Chrome Silvers in AK to 15 pounds with one. And I know for a fact that April Volkey regularly uses a Salmon #2 on big Skenna system Steelhead. As far as Bougles, I've put a 29 pound Chrome King in the net with one this season.

Would I want one for 40-60 pound AK kings, probably not, but I've yet to lose an Andromonous fish because I had a Click and Pawl reel spooled up instead a modern disc drag reel. And I can't say the same about modern disc drag reels.

I love my HM Salmon 1 and 2. I use the 1 on my 12' to 13' two-handers, the 2 on my 13' to 14' rods. They are the English-made versions. I've landed atlantics to just over 20 pounds on each. Lots o' fun! I have a salmon 3 (Korean) that I keep meaning to sell because its too heavy for any of my rods.

I use my marquis #2 on all of my spey rods, sage z-axis 5126, z-axis 7136 and z-axis 8110, The reel balances all of these rods beautifully, Its got a good amount of weight for balancing and would fit a 7126 tcx very nicely IMO. Also, the deathstar would be a great rod for large winter BC steelhead, the deathstar has more backbone than your average 7 weight and can leverage fish in the 30+ range. Back to the marquis, its a great reel for the money, and hardy is a great company to deal with, My first marquis broke, so hardy simply sent me a new reel no questions asked, theyre the best!

the last person I talked to "in person" said they didn't like the HM because the rivets would rattle loose after a little while. thoughts?

I can't deny I had to send my Korean made Hardy Marquis Salmon 1 back to have the pawl post rivet replaced...but I can't help loving it anyway

If you fished it, and heard the sound it makes, and the way the shiny rim glints in the sun, and...well, you'd understand.

Looks like they stand behind their warranty.
