Malkin is more naturally skilled, IMO. I haven't seen a guy able to puck handle at speed, and do it with such ease like Geno since Lemieux. Geno is definitely a groove type player though. When he's on, he's really on, but he can go through stretches where things just don't work. Sid sort of wills things to happen. He will continuously run into a brick wall until he knocks it down. Not as skilled as Geno, IMO, but with his high end skill and his sheer determination, that's why Sid gets the results he does, and he can sort of be counted on more. Sid is just going to make it happen.
I have much more fun watching a blazing hot Evgeni Malkin. He's an unstoppable force once he gets in the groove. Then again, one of things I hate watching the most is an Evgeni Malkin who is in a slump and taking lazy, stupid penalties. It's a give and take.
