Ovechkin Or Malkin

Every week, the NHL on TSN panel voices its opinions on the hot topics of the day in the Wednesday Night Hockey Quiz.

Question No. 3: Penguins fans are saying that Geno Malkin is the league MVP.  Good evidence in the last game - he got five points, he hit the 100-point mark, he leads it by 10.  Who’s your choice?  It’s basically coming down to Alex Ovechkin or Malkin.

Pierre McGuire: Ovechkin. The big thing on Ovechkin is that he’s probably scored the best goal of this NHL season against the Montreal Canadiens. He does this virtually every single night. If he’s not part of the Washington Capitals, they’re probably not leading the Southeast division, they’re not pushing for home ice in the playoffs. He’s the most valuable player.  Take him off the Capitals, they’re not anywhere near as good.

Keith Jones
: For me, it’s Malkin. You think of Mike Green with the Capitals, you think of Sergei Gonchar with the Penguins. Gonchar playing now just 15 games, Malkin over the 100-point mark again.  Without a great defenceman on the blueline for much of the season, Malkin has gotten the job done.

more and two other questions answered…
