Early 90's d was indeed quite strong but the current group in the last 5 years is pretty good too in terms of the depth and quality of Dman.

There was a bit of a lag in the late 90's and early 2000's of young Dmen entering the league but some of this is perception as to the lower scoring and the changing nature of play in the NHL as well IMO.

Mid 90's might have been the peak of elite and depth for high quality explosive forwards too, at least in the NHL.

As for 2 way centers has there even been a deeper and better era than right now?

pretty hard to argue when the best center is at least decent in his own zone and plays a more 200 foot game than most top centers in the 70's-early 90's.
