I don't understand this. We're talking about the best defensemen ever to play hockey here. Do you think your team speed is something that is so revolutionary and so much faster that they've never seen before? There were plenty of fast players when they played in the NHL. You have good speed in your top 6, but it's hardly going to be "lambs to the slaughter" like you insist.

And as for Hull being 'the only true 1st liner' on my team... say what? Fedorov is more of a first line player, especially in the circumstances, than Abel. And Bure is right there with Abel too.
Abel is easily a better first liner than Fedorov is, especially when you consider Abel's playing at the weakest forward position for depth, and Fedorov at the best for depth.
