I look at it the most easiest way possible.
Take away Malkins wingers, now take away Sids.
Other than injuries to, Sid, Geno can't keep up. Before Sids head issues he was ready to set the bare that I don't think anyone has touched since he himself put up 122. When Geno can do this stuff when Sids playing "fully" healthy, Geno's a notch below.
Unfortunately they lost a half a season so this stuff will have to be relegated to next season.
What are you talking about? Sid had his ankle injury in the 07-08 season. Malkin won the Conne Smythe and Art Ross in the 08-09 season. So he went head to head with healthy Sid and beat him (at least in the playoffs unless you are really arguing that Sid wasn't healthy 15 months after the injury).
Also, Sid had Kunitz-Guerin in the playoffs while Geno had Talbot Feds so I'm not sure what you're getting at there. Until Neal, Sid has had the first crack at the top winger on the team. So when you take all of that away, you're argument doesn't have a leg to stand on.
