Why do you think Malkin's going to be as good as Crosby or Ovechkin?
Though I don't believe the Malkin hype, that he'll be on the Crosby/Ovechkin level or may even surpass one, Malkin still projects out as a franchise player. None of the players offered in that rumor come anywhere near to that level of player.
