However I would take a RUSTY Lemieux or Lidstrom over a lot of the players who have gone to player in order to stay in practice simply because these players are that much better then their peers.

As far as Malkin… IMHO, he was the best player at the world juniors that I saw. Yes, better than Crosby and better than Carter or Ovechkin.
Potential and 2.50 will get you a latte of course … but he looked awesome at the juniors.
