I never said that any team would make the deal, just that it's even value wise. But the Canucks could use a big enforcer like Cairns, especially considering that Cairns does have the ability to play a regular NHL shift as a 6th d-man. If he was acquired, a d-man would have to be moved, likely Slegr. This is why this deal makes some sense from a Canucks' perspective(although I think they may just either stick with their current "enforcing" situation or pick up a no talent goon for really cheap...).

As for Babchuk, I highly doubt he's available, especially for Parrish. He'll be the Hawks #1 d-man for the next decade...
