With Hleb it's more "pre-goals" than "pre-assists". If you catch my drift. He had this ability to know exactly when people would score so he made sure to stay out of the way in order to not interfere. If you've seen Nicholas Cage in "Next" you know what I'm talking about. He sometimes made sure that we scored two or three goals without him touching the ball even once in a position where he might have been tempted to take a shot. Such devotion from someone who spent most of his time playing off a striker is a real rarity these days.
