I think this New NHL has redifined the term Defenceman.

And what of defensive forwards? Are they to score, or defend?

No, defencemen can be there to score, example Souray and McCabe, just because they got defence in their name doesnt mean they are defencemen... offensemen or forwards i guess, we have lots of defensive lines/checking lines which dont score goals but rather shut down other teams defence. you get what i'm saying?
