If Crosby Is Gretzky, Malkin Is Messier

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

“I think he does fly under the radar,” said Penguins general manager Ray Shero. “Sid’s the one who has to do all the press conferences. Yeah, we’re pretty fortunate to have two guys like them.”

Malkin is a massive man, just like Joe Thornton of the San Jose Sharks. But he’s faster. He’s also a better shooter, but not as a silky smooth a set-up man as Jumbo Joe, but still very clever.

“Very creative. He could make plays in a phone booth,” said Penguins winger Gary Roberts.

“Gino (Malkin) doesn’t get as much attention as Sid,” said former Oilers forward Petr Sykora, his linemate. “But on any other team he’d be the guy.”
