More importantly, being on the top pairing doesn't mean you are a top pairing guy. For example, the Blues' top pairing over the last two years has been Pietrangelo and Huskins/Colaiacovo/Redden/Cole. The Blues' third pairing has Roman Polak, who could be a #3 probably, and Shattenkirk is on the 2nd pairing, even though he could be a 1st pairing guy
