How do today's dmen stack up to the Orr/Potvin/Robbinson era?

I think that the style of play and changes to the way in which the offensive game is dictated today contribute to the discrepancy in offensive statistics between yesterday's great dmen and the current group. To be sure, Bobby Orr transcends any argument, but otherwise, I believe Potvin, Robinson, etc. would have flourished in this day and age and Pronger, Leetch and Lidstrom, etc. would have been stars back in the day.
