Malkin Was Well Prepared

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
One person watching Malkin carefully these days is Dave King, his former coach with Metallurg Magnitogorsk in Russia last season. Of Malkin's rapid adjustment to life in the NHL, King said: "I'm not surprised at all. I knew he was ready, almost a year ago. "The one thing about Malkin is, he wasn't a guy who would get five points in one game and then go four or five games with nothing. He scored consistently almost every game. He was really consistent in terms of the effort he delivers — and when you're consistent with your effort, quite often you're more consistent with your statistics, too. They're related.
