I don't think that's quite true. Koivu said himself in an interview a few weeks ago that the two players with whom he had the most chemistry and therefore enjoyed the most playing with in his NHL career in Montreal were Recchi and Zednik.
In the current lineup, Koivu likes playing the best with Zednik and Zednik likes playing the best with Koivu too. They have good chemistry and were flat out dominant from the HC game to the birth of Z's baby.
Zednik sure doesn't look as motivated to play with Ribs on the ice as he was with Koivu, and Jacques Demers has kind of confirmed this impression the other night (that Zednik wanted to be on Koivu's line).
It's normal for players with great chemistry to want to play together (like Ribeiro and Dagenais, Juneau and Dackell, Koivu and Zednik, maybe Gratton and Ward too).
