Where does he fit though? If he's picked up to play as a defensemen, that means that Slegr is out of a job, I don't think Burke and Crawford a prepared to move him. What happens if Jovo or someone goes down? I'd much rather have a mobile, experienced guy like Slegr then a immobile guy like Cairns or a completely inexperience player from the minors playing. Maybe that's just me?

Like I said, Cairns could be an option, but If the Canucks want an enforcer, the'll likely look for a guy who is a forward and put him in Lindgren's spot. The blueline is just too deep to add anyone else IMO.
