I don't see why it shouldn't be given similar credit as say, Bobby Hull's time in the WHL, or Jagr's years in the KHL, but like them, I think most people will use what they did to project what they would do in the NHL. With Malkin, it's clear he's one of if not the best player in the world, and has been healthy and productive in a very good league during the lockout. In the grand scheme of things, he should probably be given credit to his career resume as if he were to have another great season in the NHL. That said, it's looking likely there will be a shortened season now, so in the end, people will most likely just remember what he does in the NHL over the 48 or 50 games and give credit accordingly.
