Yeah because Malkin is just a whole different level of player. You're talking like the guy is Gretzky, Lemieux, or Orr but he's getting shut down by a 19 year old kid.
No, he's not on that level obviously, but Malkin won the Art Ross and most likely Hart this year by a comfortable margin despite missing 7 games. He scored 16 more points and 22 more goals than Giroux in the regular season.
..And that is just his accomplishments this year. When you start adding in his other numerous accomplishments (Conn Smythe, Art Ross in 2009, 2 Hart runner-ups, Calder Trophy) it's not even close. Sorry. A 3 game sample size should be given very little weight when compared to an entire body of work (which includes Malkin outperforming Giroux this year).
Hard to compare Stamkos and Giroux because their strengths are so different. Top flight sniper versus a playmaker/puck possession guy.
Malkin, at peak performance, blows both of them away. He's got the vision and creativity, coupled with the strength and speed and other physical gifts that Stamkos and Giroux don't have. But he is mortal, as we have seen. He needs to develop an ability to adjust to different obstacles whether it be a top-flight defensive forward tasked with neutralizing him (Couts) or chippy play meant to make him mad and throw him off his game.
If he could ever develop the ability to adjust on the fly to those situations....good lord. 130+ plus points could be realistic.
