Scoring in the 1990s started off hot before the Dead Puck Era set in, as the number of goals significantly decreased during the middle of the decade. But that doesn't mean there weren't plenty of stars during this time. After all, "The Great One" was still on the ice, and the hockey world was introduced to "The Russian Rocket." There were also elite defenders, who put their bodies on the line game after game. So if the NHL was anything during this decade, it was physical.
The stars of the NHL, of course, adapted to the changing times in the league. They got on board by being tougher on defense, not giving an inch unless it was earned by an offensive player. The players who did consistently put up goals always did it in elite fashion. Skating speed and agility along with puck placement were premiums in the '90s, and the most outstanding players learned to craft each of their talents to its finest.
