This is probably a semantic argument. McLeish is not a top 64 center, not even arguably. As such, I would not call him any kind of 2nd liner. Sedin arguably is, but if he is, he's very low on that list. I call that bargain basement. The other way to use the term, IMO, I'd if you grab a guy way later than other guys he isn't significantly worse than. Weight and Lecavalier are a couple of good examples.
