Both are exactly the same. Emphasizing that one zone is always important than the other is pure sloganist BS. Ultimately the system has to fit the players.

Detroit, Pittsburgh, Chicago have all recently won cups with great forwards.

The LA Kings also won a cup recently. People remember Jonathan Quick, and forget that the Kings regularly scored 3, 4, or 5 goals per game.
The Kings were one of the lowest scoring teams in the NHL this season.......but who's counting. Detroit, Pit and Chicago's top forwards all bought into their defesive system. Which only further supports the fact that defence wins.

Were you around to watch the Habs win a Cup.......they won with defence.

We are dealing with an established fact and I am not interested in getting involved in your role as devil's advocate.
