Despite Pacioretty's great production, the Habs keep searching for another goal-scorer.
The Habs have shown interest in Buffalo Sabres left wing Matt Moulson and New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek, but Bergevin is not interested in giving away young talent for a short-term fix.
Bergevin also had a deal in place for P.A. Parenteau of the Colorado Avalanche, but a league source close to the situation confirmed to TFP that the deal fell through at the last minute.
The Canadiens continue to be linked to Winnipeg Jets left wing Evander Kane, who is still believed to be available for trade, though a trade is not imminent.
Florida Panthers forward Brad Boyes and Columbus Blue Jackets winger Marian Gaborik are also reportedly being targeted by the Habs.
While a move is not likely to be made before today's 3pm ET Olympic roster freeze, but Bergevin is expected to add a forward by the March 5 trade deadline.
Meanwhile, contract talks between the Habs and P.K. Subban's camp remain fairly quiet.
One of Subban's agents, Mark Guy, told TFP "nothing new" has come of negotiations.
Subban is scheduled to become a restricted free agent July 1.
