And then you're right, you sprinkle in elite vision, sublime passing, finishing, and shooting skills...
Honestly, he looks a lot like a young Malkin to me, with a bit of Datsyukian mixed in. Less physical dominance than Geno, better skater, more elusiveness. His skill is at the same level. He's that good.
At 21, with 4 full years of KHL experience, you can't be comparing him to Malkin when he can't crack PPG or score at even .5PPG in the playoffs. I don't care what he looks like, the results are simply not even in the same tier as Malkin.
