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.
All Dionne really needed was a good first pass defenseman. From Gary Bergman onwards he had such defensemen throughout his career.

Problem was that Marcel Dionne played high(euphamism for avoided defence) and first pass defensemen will not risk the long pass up the middle.
