This is impressive. He waits everyone out and makes this look like a piece of cake. He's at another level from everyone when he's at his best.

2/14



Update 2/16 (back at it. someone give this man the Hart)

I have Miller on my fantasy team and I ain't even mad! Almost makes it look like child's play, doesn't he?

Worse player than Toews.

Sbisa awful coverage though.

It was a two on one with the 1 guy back on his stomach.

The only way he has more time is on a penalty shot.

Nice moves, but patience is generally impressive under pressure

Apparently, for Mr #101 it is.

The part that seems to amuse a few here is that instead of shooting or passing when it was a 2 on 1, Malkin held it forever until it was a 2 on 2 with Miller square, then cut in, 'sold' shot to keep Miller and the other defenseman looking to him as Sbisa slid.

That said, I agree with your implied point that Toews does that blindfolded with three defenders back.

There are times when I wonder why Malkin isn't the very best forward in the NHL, every season. He is awesome... often. But not quite consistently enough. Amazing pass tonight. If Malkin were (a) healthy all the time and (b) a little more intense, every night, I think he would rival Sid and Ovi and be the best forward of the past 11 years.

Actually, I was even more impressed by the Crosby assist in tonight's game. As a pass, it was just a nice pass, but the timing and the cool-under-pressure-ness of it was awesome. It was very Gretzky-ish, wherein the passer (Sid) seemed to be moving in slow-motion while everyone else was running around at top speed. Sid was going at his own speed, and pulling the action into his orbit. That was a cool play.

So cool. Plays like that happen when you know a guy is in the zone. It's the only way to do that.

Sbisa gets beat in his own zone regularly, so it doesn't surprise me Malkin made him look bad.

Heck the entire Penguins team laid on a world of hurt on the Nucks after the first period.

On his 1st goal he anticipated Maatta putting a shot on net for a rebound and boxed out the d-man before the shot was even taken and there wasn't a thing the canucks d-man could do about it.
I found that anticipation and subsequent reaction most impressive, i love that stuff. It reminded me of when Naslund would get the puck down low and Bertuzzi would crosscheck the d-man covering him to create a passing lane and gain room to shoot, that was Naslund's signal to get him the puck. It worked like a charm, much like Malkin's play.

Hopefully Malkin takes offense to being snubbed on that meaningless list and destroys in the points race and wins the artross!
