Of course Bourque wasn't an "end to end" guy. Karlsson isn't one either. They move the puck through the neutral zone either by carrying it or with give and goes. More often than not, all they do is gain the line, establish zone control and dish the puck off.
Coffey, Housley and Green were/are "end to end" rushing D-men.
They carry the puck in straight lines, go deep and will take it right behind the other teams net if they have to.
Both are still "rushing" d-men.

Either way, simply pinching off the blueline when your team has zone control does not make one an offensive D-man heh.
Even Skill0 does that when a lane opens up.
