Sidney Crosby makes 1st team All-NHL All-Decade team, Evgeni Malkin makes 2nd team

The Pens’ stars make a big list

NHL: Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

As expected the Penguins put two star players on the NHL’s recently announced all decade team for the 2010’s.

Sidney Crosby makes the first team, as does surprisingly enough Marc-Andre Fleury. Popular guys tend to win popularity contests.

Evgeni Malkin checks in on the second team, which is pretty just. The others on the first team played more games and have more points.

The 2010’s were a very great decade for the Pens, winning two Stanley Cups and making the playoffs each and every year of the decade. Star players getting a little nod from the league is well-deserved.
