Completely true... a lot of these guys were still among the best D men in hockey aged late 30's or ~40.
Pronger, Bourque, Chelios, Stevens, Lidstrom, Niedermayer, Leetch, MacInnis, Housley, Murphy, Coffey, Suter were all playing for several years at the same time. Ofc some were past their best, but a lot of them were still damn good players. Pretty sure all of those guys are better than anyone in the NHL atm.
Both Hatchers, Blake, Numinen, Desjardins, Zubov, Duchesne, Patrick, Olausson, Wesley, Gonchar etc were no slouches either around that time. Then even guys like Jovocop, Schneider, Ozolins and Ohlund etc.
