While the argument for best player of the generation is usually Crosby vs. Ovechkin, you have Kane and Malkin just a notch below; they play different positions and have different playing styles, but are comparable in terms of career numbers and achievements - who would you say has been better?
Kane has scored 389 goals and 1022 points in 973 career regular-season games (1.05 Points per game). In the playoffs, he has 52 goals and 132 points in 136 games (0.97 PPG).
Malkin has scored 416 goals and 1076 points in 907 career regular-season games (1.19 Points per game). In the playoffs, he has 169 points in 166 games (1.02 points per game).
Both players have won the Calder, Art Ross, Hart, Lindsey and Conn Smythe trophies. They both have 3 cups with their respective teams. Personally, I think they have played at pretty much the same level, though I believe Kane will go on to be the greater player because of his ability to stay healthy.
