If you go around the league, most of the top teams aren't built all that differently.

Keith, Seabrook, Oduya, Hjalmarsson

Beauchemin, Souray, Fowler, Lydman

Martin, Letang, Orpik, Niskanen

New Jersey:
Greene, Salvador, Zidlicky, Fayne

Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk, Hamilton

Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Garrison

St. Louis:
Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, Jackman, Cole

Generally speaking you're looking at 3 puck movers and 1 defensive defenseman (of course there is some overlap, as in players who can move the puck and play a rugged style). Not worlds apart from our top 4 with Markov and Diaz as the pure puckmovers, Subban as the hybrid and Gorges as the defensive defenseman.
