WashPost with the love for Malkin

Postby scpensfan on Tue Feb 14, 2006 11:45 pm

From Mike Wise advancer of men's Olympic hockey play:

"It runs counter to American groupthink, in which that Alex Ovechkin is already hailed as maybe the greatest Russian player ever in just his maiden season with the Washington Capitals. What if I told you Alexander the Great is not even the best player in his dorm room at the Athletes’ Village? That his Russian teammate, roommate and good friend Evgeni Malkin may be better?
The puckheads know who Malkin is, and the non-hockey crowd will find out soon about the Pittsburgh Penguins’ No. 2 pick in the NHL’s 2004 entry draft. Malkin is a 19-year-old multifaceted center in Russia’s elite league, and he is expected to play for Pittsburgh next season.
“Alex is very talented, for sure, but who knows how it goes?â€￾ said Alexander Kuzmak, an NHL commentator in Moscow who is serving as the Russian team’s press officer in Turin. “But in Russia, Malkin is considered even more talented than Ovechkin. He’s not just scorer. He can create the play. He can do everything.
“But even in this case, who knows what Malkin will be in many years?â€￾
