Let's see, Malkin took the trophy as playoffs MVP and he's currently 24 years old. Yes, that's a playoffs megastar. Because you claim he disappears doesn't make it so.

I never said he was the equal of Crosby and Ovechkin. If you re-read my post, you'll see that I called him the 3rd best forward in the game, behind them.

Face it, you don't like one of the best players in the world, a fellow who barring injury is a mortal lock to make the Hall of Fame.

Comparing him to Camalleri is more evidence that you just don't get it. I'm sure you have your reasons for not liking him but you have a severe blind spot for not recognizing a truly great player. You'll be hard-pressed to find someone who agrees with an opinion such as yours. The reason is that your opinion defies logic and evidence.

How many Rangers forwards that have come around in the last 40 years are better than Malkin? Gretzky was at the end of the line as a Ranger. Messier is the only one and he was not original Rangers property, nor a kid when he was here. I can't think of one.
