After their loss in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Carolina Hurricanes are focused on the future, which now seems to exclude key forward Martin Necas.

Carolina Hurricanes' offseason changes

Reports suggest that the Hurricanes are preparing for significant changes this summer. Defenseman Brett Pesce is not expected to sign an extension, and now it appears Martin Necas will not receive a contract extension either.
The Hurricanes are not expected to sign Brett Pesce and Martin Necas to new contracts.

Martin Necas' status and future

Martin Necas is scheduled to be a restricted free agent this summer. His father indicated that Necas does not expect to return to the Carolina Hurricanes next season.
I'll be very surprised if Martin Necas plays for Carolina in the next season. As his dad said, Martin wants to play in 1st line & 1st PP unit. His dad even said in an interview for @DenikSport: ,,Martin wants to be traded.» In my eyes, Necas is a great offensive winger.

Potential trade and offer sheet scenarios

Necas' restricted free-agent status could be advantageous for the Hurricanes, allowing them to get something in return for him. Although they are not actively trying to re-sign Necas, they could match any offer he receives if they qualify him. This also opens up the possibility of trading Necas.
As the offseason progresses, it will be interesting to see if Martin Necas' name comes up in trade rumors. Another team might attempt to offer sheet Necas in retaliation for the Hurricanes' previous offer sheeting of Jesperi Kotkaniemi.
The Hurricanes' offseason decisions, including the futures of Necas and Pesce, will shape the team's trajectory as they look to build on their playoff experiences and prepare for next season.
