Last question from me - how close do you personally rate Ovechkin and Malkin? I know it's been done over and over but I'd like your opinion.
I'm about the same as most people on this one- Ovechkin one year ago was a bit better than Malkin is now. He can simply control the game more thoroughly, in almost any way he wants to. I mention the time difference because Malkin is nearly a year younger than Ovechkin.
