Default ESPN’s All Decade Team

I’ll just leave this here for your amusement.

C: Steven Stamkos (370 G, 350 A, 1.08 PPG)
LW: Alex Killorn (105 G, 156 A, 0.50 PPG)
RW: Nikita Kucherov (188 G, 274 A, 1.03 PPG)
D: Victor Hedman (94 G, 324 A, 0.60 PPG)
D: Anton Stralman (29 G, 101 A, 0.37 PPG)
G: Ben Bishop (222-131-64, .921 SV%, 2.28 GAA)

Coach: Jon Cooper (305-159-44)

They acknowledged that the decision at RW between St.Louis and Kucherov was difficult.

Killorn has never been the best LW on any Lightning team he's been on, so not sure he should be on the all decade team. Palat beat him like a drum in every conceivable way over the same time period. I admit I'm biased though. Palat has been my fav Bolt for a long time, and I've always thought Killorn wildly overrated by our fanbase and coaching staff.

Also think it should be Vasi over Bishop because of the Vezina win, and the whole not getting injured at the worst possible moment thing.

I mean, true. But who is ahead of him? I could only come up with Palat. Do you consider guys like Namesty/Miller/TJ as LW (even though they are really centers)? Can you count Gourde even though he's only played 2 seasons?

I wouldn't consider Namesy/Miller/Gourde because they don't have a big enough body of work and the bulk of TJ's best performances came at Center. Regardless, Killorn over Palat is just dumb.

Barry wouldn’t have Stamkos on the team.
