Major trade proposals emerged today regarding the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens as both teams seek to make changes to their roster.

With recent rumours surrounding the Montréal Canadiens trying to acquire Martin Necas and Trevor Zegras, there needs to be back up plan. And with that being said New York Rangers forward Kaapo Kakko comes into play.
If Necas and Zegras are too expensive for the Canadiens to acquire, another great option would be for them to acquire Kakko as it looks like the Rangers will not be keeping him around for next season.

What the trade exchange would look like:

Many sources have suggested it's truly over for Kaapo Kakko and his time with the New York Rangers. Considering throughout this season he hasn't proven himself and even got benched during the Rangers playoff run.
"Swapping Kaapo Kakko this summer is an obvious gesture for the Rangers."
