What linemates did Fedorov have who were better than Ron Francis? Slava Kozlov was Fedorov's best regular linemate.
He occasionally played shifts in his DET career with Yzerman or Shanahan. Jagr spent the entire 1995-96 season on the PP with Francis and Lemieux. Jagr had plenty of other time with Lemieux. Kovalev and Lang were in there also.
After leaving Detroit, Fedorov went to an Anaheim team with very limited forward talent, and then moved to Columbus where he played occasionally with a very young Rick Nash. He finally was traded to Washington and served as a second line center and defensive specialist. He saw the occasional rare shift with Ovechkin, but it was unusual.
I don't detect any regular linemates for Fedorov who match up to Jagr's, and Fedorov's "occasional" linemates don't match up either.
