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

The Caps would have finished last without Ovechkin or Malkin coming out of the lockout and would have drafted higher than Backstrom. Had the Caps drafte Erik Johnson instead of Backstrom they would be significantly worse.
* Lets say that the NHL had not screwed the Caps because they won the Ovechkin lottery and the Caps had gotten Crosby?
If Washington drafts Jonathan Toews they have a very good 1-2 center punch of Malkin and Toews for years.
