It's a hard task to compare them. They play different hockey. Malkin is a more playmaker, Taras is a more finisher. They complement each other. It would have been a beasty line had they played together, a killer machine. But it's just a dream.
Also it depends on a team. Malkin was lucky - Pittsbirgh allowed him to develop his talent as an offensive player. Consider, would he have become such a megastar had he played, for example, in Columbus instead of Nash? Or imagine even Saint Gretzky in Columbus?!!!

But you are right. It's better not to expect from him anything great. Just let him play and develop step by step.
