Yeah, a Cairns-like career would be great for Sammy The Bull. Cairns spent 8 seasons in the NHL as a 6/7 defenseman. That might be The Bull's limit.

However, Cairns was ahead of The Bull at the same age. He put up significantly better stats in juniors, he barely spent any time in the ECHL. I distinctly remember Cairns as a prospect because the year he joined Bingo was the first year I began following prospects (got internet and subscribed to the Blueshirt Bulletin). At the time, 20 years ago, Cairns was viewed as a superior prospect to what Noreau is right now.
