Malkin only has one. its a silly metric this early in a shortened, strange season. Ovechkin has world class talent and should still be considered elite. that being said, his team sucks.
His production has been trailing off for awhile. People didn't just start questioning him yesturday, this has been going on for awhile. I don't consider him elite. To be concidered elite is to be able to elevate your game despite having bad teammates and adjust your game when teams have figured you out. He's has done none of that and the fact when he's on the ice he just looks like a lost person. The D has a easier time shutting him down, his passes and shots leads to nowhere and sometimes when he's buzzing around the ice with the puck it leads to nowhere. At one point he was concidered him world class but these days with how he's been playing lately I just don't see it. He can throw his weight around all he wants, but he's there to score and elevate his team and he hasn't done that.
So no, I don't think he's elite and I certainly don't feel sorry for him at all. You go around taking cheap shots at others, you get what you deserve.
