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

Over the 2003-04, it went from Ovechkin being an absolute slam-dunk #1 pick to a mostly slam-dunk #1 pick.
On a 1-10 scale on draft day, Ovechkin would have been about a 9.5, Malkin a 9.25, Barker between a 7-5 and 8, and a big logjam after that. Basically, there was a gap between Ovechkin and Malkin, but it wasn't the chasm it had been previously.
