Wow! One word wow! What a player! Whoever has seen the game last night USA-Russia will understand that this is a very, very special player in Malkin! Please, no comparisons with anybody else - Malkin is unique! I have no words to describe what this player does on the ice, you have to see it to believe it. Every time he touched the puck the american players had no clue what was going to happen next. What about his defensive plays, steals, backchecks, he was all over the place. Also he has the fire in his eyes, which I hadn't seen last year. He came out to play PK and to protect his friend and his roomate with a couple of minutes ago regardless of the fact the game was basically over. (Stupid Mcguire will never understand what that is). This guy not only makes his unit much better, I thought he gave the boost to all the other lines. This is the guy Russia will build its national teams around for a long long time!!!
