Look at TB, they won with Boyle,Kubina, who fit your definition, and 4 others who are good players but can't be defines as elite puck movers.
TB won last year mostly and mainly because of Khabibulin. He saved their behind so many times it wasnt even funny. This year they had the same D but they had no goaltending to save them. They have great puck movers but they are awful in defensive coverages. Our D does a better job then them in that department. You need a mix of the two to be succesful.
