http://www.pittsburghpenguins.com/team/features/arts/781.0.php ...Evgeni Malkin was the dominant force in the entire tournament and has not only solidified his #2 overall ranking, but has significantly narrowed the gap between himself and consensus No. 1 Alex Ovechkin. Itâ€™s not a matter of Ovechkin coming back to the pack; Malkin has just elevated his game to new levels. A number of teams now have the pair ranked in a dead heat, with some believing that Malkinâ€™s rapid progression and long-term upside make him worthy of the top spot. As much as we love Ovechkin, itâ€™s not that big a stretch. Malkin is nearly a full year younger and will play in the NHL at nearly 6-4/215 pounds when he fills out, with all the puck skills of a much smaller man and a nasty edge to boot. Watch the way Vinny Lecavalier has been playing in this yearâ€™s playoffs and imagine Malkin 5-6 year from now - the comparison seems quite valid.
