Both are only 26 years old. It's a steal for the Pens.
Why do you think Malkin's going to be as good as Crosby or Ovechkin?
Because Malkin has outstanding speed on the ice, he can just glide by people. He is a goalscorer, but like Crosby has excellent vision and can be a playmaker too. He is also superior right now to both of them defensively and is a very dangerous on the PK. He is big and physical. He is just as good as those two. Ovechkin himself said, in an interview about 2 months ago, that Malkin was the best of the three, himself included.
I cant wait to have two all world centers on this team, and in a few years Staal will be ready, although I still wish Shero would have traded him for Jack Johnson. The offer was there, straight up and we refused.
