If there is a NHL season next year, is there any indication if he is coming over? He had a great playoff this year and would have a real shot playing for a young, poor Washington team
He has improved a LOT since beying drafted. The fact, that he was part of the trade could help him making the NHL next year but I think he still needs 1-2 years in AHL or Extraleague to develop. If Washington takes Malkin, and I dont thing they dont, his situation in the team doesnt look that good, cause he needs to play in the 1st or 2nd line and powerplay, his shot is not that good but he has got some great moves and great passing skills. In my opinion he leaves Europe this year. Next station AHL or NHL.
