Wrong. Nice try though. The Blackhawks were the 5th best defensive team that year. The Flyers were the 2nd best defensive team that playoff season.

Coincidence that they made it to the finals that year with the second best playoff defense? I think not.

You can argue against history all you want but the fact still remains, a defense first commitment has won 99% of cups in the last 25+ years. Yes the aberration happened in Carolina, but I'll go with the rule, not the exception to it.
