Pens Trade Pick for Cairns
 
Panthers trade Cairns to Penguins for draft pickAssociated Press


SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Florida Panthers traded defenseman Eric Cairns to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday in exchange for a sixth-round pick in this year's NHL entry draft.

Cairns, 31, had one assist and 37 penalty minutes in 23 games with the Panthers this season. He was signed by the Panthers as a free agent following the 2003-04 season.

In 429 career games with the Rangers, Islanders and Panthers, Cairns has nine goals and 32 assists with 1,090 penalty minutes.

A 6-6 241 pound defenseman? Sounds good to me. With the exception of Scuderi (who is still new to the NHL) we don't have a solid, big defensive-defenseman on this team. I can't count how many times opposing team players have camped out in front of our net untouched and ended up getting a rebound goal.

Before the season even started I questioned our defense. We didn't have a defenseman with a large frame who likes to throw his body around and is able to move guys away from the front of the net. Hopefully Cairns can do it for the Pens. Overall, I like this move. I'm willing to give away a meaningless sixth round pick for this guy.

We need some authority in the Defense. We started with Gonchar. and Cairns will help finish it.
