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.
Now that is list of #1 D-Men!
Scary how good D was in the 90's
There are like 8 Hall of Famers on that list
