    i believe it was either sykora or elias that said last year that malkin isn't afraid at all to go into high traffic areas. he's not a hitter by nature like ovechkin though.

    from hockeysfuture

    Physical Play: Isn’t naturally a physical player, preferring more of a European, technical style of hockey...can take and deliver physical punishment very well, even at the Super League level...great awareness under pressure and is very hard to knock off the puck…even if a body is between him and the puck, he uses his reach and great stick handling ability to direct the puck to a teammate and away from the opponent...fights hard at the boards, but here again, needs to bulk up to be more effective, but already very hard to knock down.

    i don't think he'll have much trouble.

    I still haven't figured out if Slitty is a troll or a gimmick poster.

    I was really expecting something much more than that.

    Drove to the net, got slashed in the wrist, the puck cleared to the opposite side, and he went quickly to the bench.

    WOW, Pitts fans and the NHL look out. Crosby and Malkin are going to be dominate.

    BS thread. I've seen Malkin go into traffic, battle along the boards, fight through hooks and holds and stick up for his teammates. This kid is a horse of a player now nevermind when he hits 210-215.

    Its quite a sad story really, he could have been a great player if it were not for the thin bones condition.
