That's simply not true. 2-way elite players, even when they aren't scoring, have HUGE effects on each and every game. Shut down the offense of a player like Ovechkin, what does he do? Shut down Kovalchuk, what does he do? If Kane were not scoring, what would he provide?

Multi-dimensional players are always more valuable come playoff time.
