Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin met with the media earlier this week. 

Bergevin stated that he wouldn't be in the market for a rental player that would cost him a 1st round pick or one of his upper level prospects that played in the World Juniors. 

However he did mention that he would be willing to add players that could help the team for more than just a playoff run or if it helped the Habs' load up on draft picks or players like the Joel Armia/Steve Mason deal. 

Tomas Tatar has enjoyed success since coming over to Montreal as he's registered 33 points in 44 games so far this season. 

Could Bergevin bring in one of Tatar's former teammates?

According to Eklund of HockeyBuzz.com, the Canadiens are showing interest in forward Gustav Nyquist. 

The 29 year old currently has 37 points in 45 games and 10 of those have come on the power play. 

The Red Wings currently have zero cap space according to CapFriendly.com so dumping any contract would be appreciated, why it might not work for Bergevin is because Nyquist is UFA after this season. However if the Canadiens can receive some draft picks or a young prospect along with Nyquist for the cap relief, it could be something Bergevin explores for the playoff push. 

Do you think Nyquist could help the Habs?
