Rangers, Canadiens engaged in trade talks?

The New York Rangers are looking for ways to bounce themselves out of the bottom of the Eastern Conference and it seems as if the team is vigorously looking to make a roster move to shake things up.

Rangers GM Jeff Gorton is believed to be scouring the trade market for some help up front, though it's unclear if a move is imminent.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the Rangers are interested in Montreal Canadiens forward Andrew Shaw and may also be eyeing teammate Alex Galchenyuk.

A trade involving Galchenyuk appears to be unlikely, at this point in the season, but the right offer could persuade Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin into pulling the trigger.

Shaw, however, is believed to be up for grabs, as multiple outlets reported last week.

Shaw, 26, has four-years left on his contract beyond this season and comes with a $3.9 million annual salary cap hit.

The Rangers have less than $3 million in available salary cap space and any deal with any club would likely require the team to include a roster player.

It's not yet known whom the Rangers are willing to move, though the team did explore calls for forward Chris Kreider last season and in the summer.
