Malkin is just WRONG!!!

He is unstoppable and filthy! Seems like the best player in hockey right now. He is a train with no brakes.

According to Pierre McGuire, he just "changed the parameters of hockey" with that PK shift in the second.

Hah. Malkin has a tendency to kill penalties all by himself. When he is on he is nothing short of amazing on all aspects of the game.

Yes, if Ovechkin wasn't in the league.

He skated through like 4 Flyers before dumping the puck in. It was very nice.

It was a real nifty play but just a slight exaggeration on Pierre's part, I think

He certainly is not the player Lemieux was, but Malkin is definitely Mario-esque on many nights.

Trains with no brakes often lead to trainwrecks.

It seems to me like Alexander Ovechkin is the best player in hockey...

Meh, he's great but best in hockey? He has a star-studded lineup but is still short in points and has 18 fewer goals than Ovechkin. Dominant, but not dominant often enough or to an insane degree. And the two are the same age after all. Still, I somehow think Malkin on the Caps paired with Backstrom and Ovy would increase his numbers to over 50 goals and 110 pts. But I think as it stands, the 03-04 season was the best worst thing to ever happen to the franchise (since the even more appallingly awful 83-84 season of course).

Reading this thread, it's like I'm reading about how Orr skated through and around players. He often did the exact same thing, while killing penalties, that you're describing here.

After watching Malkin in the last little while, I'ver decided I'm on the Pens bandwagon this year.

Watching that game there was a lot of little things Malkin did that made me like him. Going out of his way to bump Hartnell on the way to the bench, finishing his checks...good stuff.

He's got a multidimensional active stick than can change the parameters of hockey.

I think you made a mistake here. Malkin is 1 year younger and this is just his 2nd season in NHL and it's 3rd for Ovechkin. I believe Malkin will be better next season

theres obviously a direct relationship between his ugliness and his skill. If he wants to get any art rosses he'll need to get uglier. I mean Ovie already lost a tooth, Malin needs to up the ante with a hideous scar.
