Zubov was a more unique player than Modano. It's hard to compare between positions but for the better part of their careers Zubov was a better defenseman than Modano was a forward. Zubov also dictated the tempo of games, games Modano was playing in, games Modano never had the same impact on. Modano was great, and under-appreciated in his own right, but to me that says a lot about Zubov.
