Fighting Sioux All-Decade Team: The 1980s

I'd take Garry Valk before Lee Davidson.

This is why I love topics like this; everyone has their favorite players and Sioux hockey memories. There was no way I was leaving out Lee Davidson and his 202 career points (one of only five UND players ever with more than 200). I could see Valk instead of Williams or Jensen, but for me, Davidson has to stay.

I'm sure there are other players I've missed, too. Feel free to let me know!

Good idea Dave. We've got 6 months to kill before the puck drops ...

Jon Casey came within .01 of leading the WCHA in GAA 3 consecutive years. Only 1 goalie has accomplished that - Tony Esposito.

Belfour had 1 great year and was by far the better pro, but Casey was the better college goalie.

Taylor and Smail had only the one year in the 1980's, but it was a year where they made 3 years worth of plays.

Upfront, if I was really building a team (vs. an all-star team) I would put Dave Tippett and Gord Sherven up front somewhere. These are guys who made a living shutting down NHL stars after doing it in college.
