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.
