    We all know that his point totals will be bloated as a result of mooching off Armstrong and Hilbert, so subtract 50 off the total and that will give the more realistic value.

    No, he'll be on the second line, getting assists from Ryan Malone and Shane Endicott out of the goodness of their overly large hearts. :sarcasm:

    Oh, so that lucky devil is going to get to play with Endicott? In that case, subtract 65 :D

    Imagine if you reinforced Malkin's thin bones with adamantium, like Wolverine. Then he'd undoubtedly score 100... GOALS.

    He has been considered to be in the Crosby/Ovechkin class of players. Playing on the same team with Crosby can not hurt at all in that quest. I would say 90+ with an outside chance at 100.

    Nah, you're confusing crying and crying to the refs. Similar, yet very different ;)

    He'll get to 99 then kick someone to get his final game suspended :)

    It's quite possible. Crosby and Malkin will certainly give each other a boost on special teams and late-game situations, but you'll have to see how much ice-time he's getting as a 2nd line player.

    I'll say my peace...

    Since March of 2004 I've considered Malkin the best prospect of the three. My opinion has not changed. Even with what Crosby and Ovechkin have done since...I still say Malkin will be the best.
    Ovechkin came in a man...he'd played in a man's league and was approaching 20 and his adjustment period to the NHL was non-existant...he just had nothing else on his team to help him out.
    Crosby came in a boy and essentially was on his own. His adjustment time did exist, he came in great, but was vastly better at the end than the begining.


    I expect Malkin to be between the two there. He is a man, like Ovechkin. He'll be approaching 20 to start the season and I expect little to no adjustment period to the NHL. He won't be outmatched physically, he won't be used to being untouchable, he won't have the same problems Crosby did coming in.
    Unlike Ovechkin coming in though...he is going to have Sid to work with. Maybe not on the same line, but Sid's impact will be just as great as he'll take the pressure off Malkin. Plus they'll be playing on the PP together...


    Honestly...I expect 100 from him next year. Possibly more.

    He's better at this point in his career(remember, almost a full year difference) than Ovechkin was, he's the best player outside the NHL, easily, as a 19 year-old...and I fully expect him to be the best player inside the NHL within a couple years.

    He'll get 88, but his new beard will get 25 more.

    I hate the Pens with a passion but I am a big Malkin fan and I'd love to see him tear up the NHL.

    I can't wait to see the inevitable Malkin/Ovechkin line at the all-star game.

    I don't know, do you guys think Endicott will grant Malkin 100 pts next year?

    Endicott = Center
    Malkin = Center


    Disaster averted.

    You put a goal scorer like Koltsov on Malkin's wing and he may have a chance

    Malkin plays a different game from AO and Crosby while still being just as great. If he gets a point a game and plays his advanced all around game, I'll be overly happy.
