Your quote has nothing to do with what I said. Yes, Malkin makes players around him better. Malkin's play also drops off more than it should when he doesn't have good linemates. These two things are not mutually exclusive. See his start to the season this year, or last year when he had Eric Tangradi on his left wing. Malkin tends to do one of two things when his wings are failing him: 1. try to do everything by himself, or 2. stop caring and go invisible. Either way, his game suffers.
