People need to remember, there's somewhat of a difference between an offensive defenseman and a puck-mover.

An offensive defenseman is a guy who likes to pinch into the play a lot and who moves the puck well along the offensive blueline and who shoots often. A guy who plays in the offensive zone.

A puck-mover, on the other hand, is a guy who knows how and when to make the breakout passes, a guy that can jumpstart your transition. Detroit was full of them, as we saw in the Finals. A defensive defenseman can still be good at moving the puck, which is what the Rangers need.
