How AWESOME is he?!!! He has been motivated to "bring it" for every game and never loses that fire to win!! He's unbelieveable and is SO deserving of that "A" he was chosen to wear permanently.
So here are some of the reasons I've come up with for loving Malkin (and if I've missed anything, please feel free to include your own in the comments!):
- he's adorable!
- he's so very humble
- he's talented
- he's a natural player
- he's HOT
- he has amazingly large, masculine hands
- he's an alternate captain ("A")
- he makes the plays when they're needed
- the fire in his eyes on the ice
- his "bedroom eyes" (that one's for you, 71crush!)!!
- his passion for the game (and to win)
- his broken English
- he can play with anyone on his line
- he challenges other players to be their best
- he's a team player
