With the state of the market as it is right now, it's actually questionable whether or not picking up Malkin would actually have that effect - especially considering how Jeff Carter worked out.

(Yes, yes, Carter doesn't compare to Malkin blah blah can't hold jockstrap blah blah outrage blah blah blah. Player ability is irrelevant to the point. It's "big move" marketing we're talking about here, and we've already had misfires enough. Hell, half the folks might stay away 'cause "he's another Russian forward", as ludicrous as that seems.)
