Not if there's a priest or warrior around - they can remove divine shield
Generally if you can force a bubble out of a ret then you have got them on the ropes, as it locks them out of their primary dps cooldown, as well as lay on hands and shield wall.
I reckon Paladins will be alot less "good" in Cata
They have been OP for most / all of wotlk, not just rets though.
Ret was op for less than 3 days before heavy nerfs, and resilience boned it. Holy has been exceptional for the entire expansion, in PvP and PvE
In ICC Pallies ARE OP, no question - the best overall healer, the best overall tank, and extremely competitive dps - jack of all trades, master of two, excellent at the other
Some very interesting stuff happening in Cata though
