Of course I'd love to be proved wrong.
See, I thought the opposite. I think i'm one of the few, even among pens fans, that think Malkin would win. Malkin is scary when he gets angry on the ice, and I have to think thats how he would have to be to get into a fight. Outside of that, he's got two inches on Ovechkin, which is a bigger advantage than the weight advantage that Ovechkin has. Either way, if Malkin puts on 20 or so pounds that he should be able to put on over the next few years, opponents are going to be afraid of him even when he isn't scoring.

That being said, if Malkin continues to lift and improve himself physically, he's going to be an absolute monster. If he can get to be 6'3" 225#, he will utterly dominate anyone and everyone in the NHL.
The NHL should be scared if that ever happens.
