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

It's possible, isn't it? Just because of that stat doesn't mean that Ovie would have kept it up right until the end. He hasn't proven much to me in the post-season yet.
Geno goes into beast-mode like no other player when his team is on the line. Those type of players are invaluable in the playoffs.
Ovie has yet to lead his team on a deep run at all, and he has the team to do so.
