The Smythe is the only trophy that holds any real weight for such a claim.
Minus Gretzky, Lemieux and their cronies, Stastny has an Art Ross and is 1 point off a second.
Malkin doesn't get a sniff at an Art Ross from 1980-2001 just like every single other player not named Greztky, Lemieux or Jagr.
And if all we're doing is trophy counting, Malkin should be ahead of Crosby too then
If you're going to play the "remove Gretzky and Lemieux" card, it's only fair to consider Ovechkin. Stastny never faced any Russians like that, a huge advantage. He doesn't win an Art Ross if he's competing with a prime Ovechkin, and minus Ovechkin, Malkin (I know he himself is Russian but it doesn't matter) adds another one.
