Who is this Malkin guy?

Yeah, I know who he is...but does anyone know how he is doing this year? I traded up to get him in my keeper pool. I understand that he has the potential to be better then Ovechken though he probably wont be. But aside from the draft and a couple of bios' I really don't know much about him.

Tell me what you know...

From what I've seen, he is a fantastic hockey player. Fast, with great hands.

He's never going to amount to anything with those thin bones of his.

He's the same size as Lemieux, Sundin, and Thornton when they entered the league.

When did you complete a bone density test on him?

Why wouldn't his bones be thick? I'm sure he drinks plenty of...malk?

(Yes, Straka, somebody got the joke.)

Malkin is pretty good. Speaking of which, Ovechkin was the youngest player to lead Dynamo in goals, which he did with 13 (goals).

This line I found pretty funny to be honest. As long as he's got more meat on his bones than the guy in your avatar he'll be fine.

Malkin was RSL rookie of the year. But Ovechkin was voted the best LW in the entire RSL, which he did by being the youngest player to lead Dynamo in goals, which he did with 13 (goals).

In all seriousness, Malkin appears to be having a nice season so far.

24 games in and he's already matched his production of last season, whilst playing in a significantly tougher environment. Dominated the Romazan preseason tournament and was asked to join Russia for the Karjala cup after injuries piled up.

Malkin IS a year younger... But I doubt he has much of a shot being named RSL's top center with all the NHL talent this year.

Oh dear lord, Jacobv2, you have nearly killed me with that very original line. I hope you are happy.

For those skeptical of Malkin having thin bones, I can assure you that one of our very own posters here at HFBoards did indeed perform a bone density test on Malkin at the draft, and found him to be quite lacking in that area. So until he proves he can overcome this obstacle, I wouldn't expect much from him.

I'm not sure it's the bones, as more the needing to put on some weight. He looks like a bean pole.

Obiously you missed the point of George Harrison's story....It wasn't "a real" bone that he was taking err testing.

Malkin takes drugs and bribes. He also missed his predraft workout, which makes me very suspicious.

Suffice to say, the Great Crosby would never do such things. He also would never wear ridiculous red pants like Ovechkin.

He already looks much bigger than he did at the U18's.

Glad to hear it.


Did you go to the games? Or is there a website where I can see some links?


I Saw him in person at the Draft and he's really thin. He couldn't have topped 200 on his frame soaking wet.
