For individual players, does good offense also imply good defense and vice versa?

Some key points from the Puck Prospectus article: * A good offensive player, one who can continue to apply offensive pressure onto an opponent, is in fact a good defensive contributor. * A bad offensive player, who cannot apply offensive pressure onto an opponent, is in fact a poor defensive contributor. * A good defensive player, who can keep the opponent from applying offensive pressure is in fact, a good offensive contributor. * A bad defensive player, who cannot keep the opponent from applying offensive pressure is in fact, a poor offensive contributor. So the stats we use to try and distinguish between players' offensive and defensive contributions, no matter how advanced, might not adequately capture those distinctions.
