This is the first of three Fighting Sioux All-Decade teams. Click here for the 1990s team. Check back later for the 2000s All-Decade Team.
I came up with this list based on statistics, honors, and championships. More consideration was given to players who played their entire career in the 1980s.
Steve Johnson-Tony Hrkac-Bob Joyce
Phil Sykes-Mark Taylor-Doug Smail
Cary Eades-Perry Berezan-Jim Archibald
Troy Murray-Lee Davidson-Chris Jensen
Neil Eisenhut, Dave Tippett, and Brian Williams are the reserve forwards.
James Patrick-Craig Ludwig
Ian Kidd-Russ Parent
Scott Sandelin-Marc Chorney
Rick Zombo and Howard Walker are the reserve defensemen.
Jon Casey and Darren Jensen are the backup goaltenders.
This is the type of list that (hopefully) will spark some debate. Feel free to chime in with your own list or take me to task for a glaring omission.
