Shielding chance has nothing to do with chance to defend (dodge) an attack. I believe the dodge chance rolls first..then shield chance.

I would be hard pressed to find a developer quote that said saber attacks cannot be shielded. I looked for it but could not find it. I was always curious about it because I noticed saber attacks often hitting me for full damage in war zones and my shields never going off (big orange bubble). So I tested it against a Sentinel spamming non-special saber attacks. 10 minutes of saber spamming...shield never went off...but I could dodge some attacks even with a defense of 10%. I welcome you to test it yourself.
