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

In 10 less games. An the deeper you go in the playoffs the stronger the competition, specially in the SCFs. We'll never know if he would've kept that pace. In the end Malkin has the Conn Smythe, he was better. He scored something like the most playoff points since Lemieux or Gretzky.
