Actually, Malkin seems to play at his best when he isn't on the same line as other star players. That has been the case both with Pens and NT. He plays better with Popov or Talbot then with Crosby or Ovechkin.
He is excellent at drawing attention of the opposition and finding open teammates.
Malkin likes the puck as fast and as neat to him as possible, hes a greedy player but he gets stuff done. With that said I think Kovulchuk on Malkins line would be great. Kovulchuk is not a selfish player and hes very smart. I think Kovulchuk and Malkin on one line with maybe Taresenko or Popov on their line is huge.
Ovechkin on the 2nd line should be with Datsyuk, both guys who need attention away from one another to get production and they can do that for one another. Idk if i like Semin on that line though... I believe a good winger could be Radulov on this line
