Actually, I would say that the best and most talented offensive teams in the league, like DET, VAN, SJ, WSH, CHI, TB, etc., rely on the cycle more than anyone else. The difference is that when they cycle the puck, the cycle eventually evolves into a series of advanced passes that create scoring chances from the circles or the slot. Teams like the Rangers just shuffle the puck along the boards until they either turn it over, kick it back to the point for a shot or one pass and a shot, or try to stuff it into the net.
