Lol Fleury being on this list
Apparently giving average results while playing a bunch of games on great teams counts as "goalie of the decade". Not even to touch on his playoff resume for the first half of the last decade.
Lundqvist not being on the first team is insane
Lundqvist belongs there and is Doughty really the best defender of the decade? Absolutely not
Hockey news did top 10's of the decade for a few categories. I guess the decision in goal was because Fleury has 20 more wins than Hank.
NHL Numbers: It's not the end of the decade but you can see it from here - TheHockeyNews
Maybe the NHL picked Doughty because he won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and 2014, along with the Norris Trophy in 2016. I'm not saying he deserves it, that's my reasoning why the NHL selected him.
Yikesss. Dude gave everything he had for you guys and won you your first cup in decades and arguably saved your franchise and this is how you act?
Doughty is an all star pro...minus the skills competiton.
I can appreciate what Fleury did while simultaneously saying him making this list is insanity.
When he was taken 1st OA the team was not in good shape. I know Crosby and Malkin were big parts of that too but Fleury was the guy at first and he was the backbone of the cup.
This has what relevance to a team of the decade?
I'm not going to throw him completely under the bus, but Fleury's performance as a Penguin wasn't worthy of "1st All-Decade team". He was an above average goalie in the regular season who had struggles in the playoffs, to the point where the Pens had to replace him TWICE (Vokoun and then Murray) in order to go far in the playoffs.
Fleury being named 1st All-Decade team in net would be like naming Mike Gartner 1st All-Decade RW in the 1980s.
All Decade Second Team.
Just feels like some major disrespect. We all have our own choices but nothing wrong with Fleury either.
Lundqvist not being first team goalie is a total joke.
I like Fleury. I think some people underrate him and it made me very happy when Vegas went to the finals and he played so well.
But I don’t get his selection here.
How do you pick a guy with zero Vezina nominations in the decade for this recognition?
HM: Bergeron, Mcdavid, Kopitar, Marchand, Tavares
They were off to a good start and then idk what happened.
The guy who didn't win the Vezina and was nominated once???????? NHL
Lundqvist is first team AINEC
Fleury is not even Top 3 in this decade or at any point in his career AINEC
That makes it sound like they went a REALLY long time in between cups, when in fact it was 17 years, which isn't that much when you compare it to teams like Chicago, Philly, and Boston.
Technically speaking, they went 1.7 decades.
How is hedman not on any team? He has as many norris trophies as doughty.
Seeing Doughty on the First team I knew immediately the salt would be mined.
Maybe the NHL liked Doughty more because he also has 2 Stanley Cups and fair or not it's something Hedman does not have.
Both teams seem decent, except Fleury is pretty crazy - sure he's first in wins, but what about Lundqvist/Rinne (almost as many wins and better save %) or even Price/Rask/Luongo/Holtby/Bobrovsky who all have better SV% (although fewer wins)
Separate names with a comma.
