Career wise to this point Ovechkin has been much better than Malkin. Let's not all lose our minds around here.
Ovechkin has been in a slump for 2 years now, with no discernable injury or excuse. He's simply declined. Malkin's down years were due to injury. So far in their careers i would give the nod to Ovechkin, but considering their ages if i could go back to their draft years i would take Malkin. Going forward Malkin is the best player in the world.
