Simply put Dionne didn't have a PP QB type to assist him being an offensive threat that almost every other top scoring forward has on their resumes.

This relationship, or rather the lack of it, has more to do with Dionne the goal scorer than Dionne the play maker.

Even with linemates, it's pretty clear that Dionne was the focal point foe the Triple Crown line as well.
