Yet more accolades have been showering on Russian ice hockey star Evgeny Malkin as the Pittsburg Penguins forward has been named the NHL's Most Valuable Player.

As far back as the 2008/09 season I was saying that Malkin is the best player in the world at a time when most were saying that it was either Ovechkin or Crosby. He`s got all the physical attributes that you need; size, speed, skill, and strength, but a lot of players have had this over the years. What really sets Malkin apart and makes him a special player is his vision on the ice. He sees everything out there, often before it even happens, almost like Gretzky or Lemieux. With his second Art Ross, he becomes only the fourth player in the last 30 years to win it more than once. The other three? Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemiex, and Jaromir Jagr. I`d say that`s pretty good company to be in.
