I agree about your points on Zubov, but I also think Modano was that guy that controled the tempo. Like you said just from a different position so hard to compare. I know living by Edmonton, especially during all those playoff natyles, Modano was "the guy"first and foremost but it was both he and Zubov that struck absolute fear in to everyone. They were the two that were head and shoulders above everyone else and nobody could match or keep up with. Id say it was the same for all opponents.
