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
Greene, Salvador, Zidlicky, Fayne
Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk, Hamilton
Edler, Hamhuis, Bieksa, Garrison
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.
