The Malkin is the PM9, he says he's used it in the past but wants something with a bit more of a curve, the Malkin is quite flat. Personally I like Bauer's P88 (Kane), it's IMO very similar to the Malkin but with more curve. However, it is more of a mid curve than a mid heel, so that might cause trouble.

Note that a bigger curve won't really give you more zip in your shots, a bigger curve is more about getting increased control when stickhandling and getting the puck more easily into the shooting pocket when shooting. If you want more lift on your shots, you should go with a blade that has a more open face (the PM9 and P88 are both quite closed, the P91A would be a more open option), but personally I hate sticks with open faces, I tend to shoot higher than I'd like as is.
