That wasn't the problem between Zubov and Lemieux. The problem was Zubov would never shoot the puck to the point other teams knew he would never shoot the puck. It used to frustrate Lemieux to no end. You could see Lemieux kill Zubov with his eyes after not shooting the puck.

That said, I loved Zubov. He was Kris Letang minus the grit and shot. Amazing skater and playmaker. When I saw we traded him for Kevin Hatcher, I about threw up I was so disappointed in Patrick at the time.
