They might be interested once he becomes an UFA, but somehow I doubt it, I mean, there's nothing in his game that suggests he's a significant upgrade over Jim Vandermeer, and the Oilers obviously didn't want him back, so...

Hunter might be someone to look at, to add a veteran presence and some grit.
This was likely cap related for NJ, however if he's as bad as you are both saying he is, then count me out on wanting him to be claimed by us.
