I think the problem most have with him is that he doesn't hit. He's not the prototypical 4th liner. He is decent on the puck, but can't do much with it once he gets it other than stickhandle and shoot at the goalie's chest.

He doesn't fight, isn't all that gritty, etc. He's a very strange 4th liner.

In all reality, Malkin is a first line AHLer who should not be in the NHL.
