It looks like Malkin could be on his way to being the best Russian NHLer in history. Let's not forget that he was second to Ovechkin in points in '08 and won the Ross in '09, so he was right in the mix for best player, just a bit below his comrade. Malkin has the momentum and he often steps up when his team needs him most. Ovechkin has been good in the playoffs, but his team has faltered repeatedly as a favorite, and he had some international flops in his earlier years as well. If Ovy can make a couple deep runs in the playoffs, or at least pull off a couple of big upsets, or have a couple great international tourneys (mainly best on best... not just winning WHC with a stacked Russian team)... and have a long NHL career, then he could put himself back in the mix on a career basis.
