Habs GM Marc Bergevin isn't actively shopping his team's leading goal-scorer, but he has been willing to listen to what other teams might have to offer.
According to the New York Post, the Rangers, Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers are among the teams interested in Pacioretty.
While the Islanders and Flyers are "taking serious runs at Pacioretty," the Post reports, the paper also notes that unless the Rangers are willing to part with defenseman Ryan McDonagh, they aren't likely to get their hands on Pacioretty.
The Canadiens have been actively shopping for another goal-scoring forward to add to their roster, and dealing Pacioretty without a star forward coming in return won't work for Bergevin.
Ideally, Bergevin would like to acquire a top-six scorer and keep Pacioretty in the lineup, despite the Post's claim that he isn't head coach Michel Therrien's "ideal."
Bergevin has spoken to the Winnipeg Jets about left wing Evander Kane, but it's unknown how far talks have gone.
