Sure, a lot of those guys did learn how to survive against faster players, but that doesn't mean it was not a problem for them. Look at Chara as a modern example. He's not very mobile, and while he can often handle speedy forwards, that is still the way to beat him, and it works when used properly.

Moreover, you are correct that this is a best of the best. That means guys like White, Johnson, and Bergman are just support guys. Bobby Hull is absolutely elite. It's like Alexander Ovechkin vs. Rob Scuderi, Nick Schultz, and Luke Schenn.
This would actually be relevant if anyone on the Swamp Devils was as slow as Chara. Instead, we have Bill White, who was quite fast for a stay-at-home guy.
