What if Washington selected Malkin first overall, and left Ovechkin to Pittsburgh?

No that wouldn't have made a difference. The OP is saying if Washington had picked Malkin instead of Ovechkin, so Washington still picks first.
I think Pittsburgh would be about the same, but they would be a one line team. That being said, maybe Staal, with the second line ice time, becomes better and they still win the cup.
Washington could go either way, but they would still be one of the top teams
