If a guy like Cairns is brought in, then Slegr would have to be sent out. For this reason, I doubt the Canucks have any interest, or if any it's probably really small, itsy bitsy sized interest...
He'd be great for spot duty(St.Louis,Minnesota)and even more insurance when injury occurs.I think picking up Cairns and what's remaining of his 900,000 contract can only be a good thing.Cairns should come relatively cheap(mid-level pick or prospect)and would add that true heavyweight that they are missing.Cairns can help make other teams be honest.
