Wow. Amazing play. Not top-100 worthy though.

Not surprising. In fact, he's still waiting patiently to get his recognition.

Sbisa is the worst defender in the NHL and I am pretty confident saying that.

Why Sbisa tried to play the puck in the first place. Just hit Malkin.

He should have worked harder to be born Canadian. Easy top 100

Nice moves, but patience is generally impressive under pressure
Patience under pressure is just being slow dude.

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.
He already rivals them for that title.
Again, if he wins the Art Ross this season (highly possible with his form this year), he will have as many Art Rosses and CS as Sid and Ovi COMBINED.
So it's ****ing madness to suggest Sid and Ovi are a class above him (they only are in term of media attractivity)
And his CS run was one of the best of all time to make this discussion even more credible.

Nobody was on their stomach on the play.

Most players would have made the pass as soon as possible before the backchecker got there. Malkin had the patience to acknowledge the fact he was playing the pass and waited for the right time to make the pass across. And it turned into a gimme.

The best part of that was Kessel laughing. Not because he scored a goal on Vancouver but you have to think that, even as one of the better wingers in the game, even guys like him have to get "star struck" sometimes. You've got to think he was laughing and said to Geno "dude, that was dirty. how in the?"

Pretty crazy play.

Malkin can thank Sbisa for the fly-by. That was the Patrik Stefan of defending.

Truly felt like the Canucks essentially gave up during that third period. Miller did not look happy about it.

miller looked pissed and the goals ( and his shoddy D support) just kept coming. watching that third period made me feel a little better about the habs defense.

This is like being in a sports class of elementary school and playing with two bigger, meaner kids. They can just overpower you, no matter what you do, and then do stuff like this to make you feel even worse.

That is an absolutely outrageous move by Malkin.
