It absolutely is taken into account

it's fun to watch you attempt to make the "offensive" role into the more difficult role to play... that's pretty funny stuff

Going into this season, Ruff talked a lot about needing a shut down pair. Many assumed that meant they needed to find someone to pair with Myers... so along came Regehr. They tried them together early and for whatever reason, they broke it up. Soon they put Regehr and Sekera together, and that was the Shut down pairing.

there is not a more difficult role in all of hockey, then the one Sekera played this past year
