That's a pretty tall order. Maltsev's record in the Soviet league is very comparible to Kharlamov and Mikhailov, and his record in international play is almost as good.
Datsyuk COULD end up better I suppose, but I doubt he will, if for no other reason than he was a late bloomer. And anyway, if VI were here, he'd say that "coulds have no place in the ATD."
