I don't think anyone is claiming that Malkin has been playing like a top3 player this past 1 season. I don't think Ovechkin has for the past season either. Doesn't mean the latter isn't one, doesn't mean Malkin can't/won't be again either.

Well, we can count on Malkin being a PPG player at his worst, coping with injuries and having worse linemates than any other star in the league. Perhaps your characterisation could be consider gross hyperbole?

No time like the present. In the future, we will laugh at you .
