I think most teams are still trying to complete their top four, or have just done so. Third pairing defensemen get limited icetime and so are lower-order priorities (imo) than second line forwards, but that #4 guy is going to be out there a lot and I think most GMs realize that any perceived weakness in the top 4 can be costly. Obviously Nalyd and I considered the second pairing important, as we were the second team to complete our top 4 (I think), just one pick behind Leaf Lander.
