I don't think he will be as good as a NHL player as most people here think. The hype around here is crazy for him. I think he will be a solid NHL player for many many years, but I can't see him being as good as most here think. I am reading that he will get 100pts next year, etc. I see a solid year if he is here and between 50-60pts as the #2 center in Pittsburgh. A solid solid year for a rookie, but not near the output we were blessed with from this years rookies. Agree or disagree with my thoughts is fine, but the hype here is insane. It seems every decent prospect is the next top 5 player in the league. Gretzky and Lemieux don't come along often and we are luck in our life time to see the same fued with Crosby and Ovechkin. I don't see it with Malkin. He will be solid, but not God.
