Here at Blueshirt Banter, we put together a roundtable to show our “All Decade” starting lineups. Our parameters were simple, include a general manager, head coach, three forwards, two defenders, and one netminder.
Blueshirt Banter’s All Decade Team
Blending together all of our selections, we can come up with the most frequent picks for an ‘All Blueshirt Banter All Decade Team.”
We almost unanimously selected Steve Yzerman as general manager. For head coach, we have a 3-3 split for Joel Quenneville and Barry Trotz. Alex Ovechkin’s the leading candidate for left wing, while Sidney Crosby is for center. Connor McDavid is our next most frequent pick for forward, so we’ll slot him in at right wing.
As for defense, Erik Karlsson’s a lock on the blue line. His partner, based on the majority of our selections, is Victor Hedman. And in net, unsurprisingly, we all would lean on Henrik Lundqvist.
All Decade Women’s Hockey Team
A few of us also selected our All Decade Women’s Hockey Teams. With the current landscape of professional women’s hockey, we’ve kept to national affiliations with logos.
