Guys I consider comparable to him in terms of talent and what they bring:

Tuomo Ruutu (better player) $3.8 AAV
Troy Brouwer (better player) $2.3 AAV
Steve Ott (better player) $2.95 AAV
Chad LaRose $1.7 AAV
Colby Armstrong $3 AAV

Maybe I have completely misjudged Malone and don't see enough Tampa games but I am not one of those types who believe a player is good because he is big, and I haven't seen much from Malone's game to say he is more than a very good third line player
Troy Brouwer? I hardly think so. Malone is a far better hockey player than Brouwer. Same goes for everyone you listed except for maybe Ruutu.
