Montreal eyeing Burrows?

There has been a lot of talk recently that Vancouver's current roadtrip will determine if they are buyers or sellers by the trade deadline.

Well, other clubs are keeping watch while these next few games play out, including the Montreal Canadiens.

According to Ben Kurzma of the Vancouver Province, Canucks forward Alexandre Burrows has been on the radar of Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin.

"The Montreal Canadiens had a scout at the game on Saturday. This isn't one of their local guys, this scout was from out east," Kuzma wrote. "(The eastern scout) was in Vancouver specifically to look at Alex Burrows. Bergevin loves Burrows."

The 35-year-old Canucks right wing has 16 points this season in 47 games played so far this season.

The Habs have been looking around the NHL to add to their roster by the March 1st deadline. Bergevin has been looking for more depth down the middle and a top-four defenseman.

It could be possible that if Burrows and teammate Jannik Hansen waive their no-trade clauses, that they could be an attractive pair for Bergevin to consider.
