After a disappointing playoff exit against the New York Rangers, reports have come out that Carolina Hurricanes star forward Martin Necas has asked for a trade.

The Carolina Hurricanes were hoping to make it to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time since 2006, but the New York Rangers eliminated them in six games in the second round. This summer, big changes might be coming to the Hurricanes' roster.
On Friday, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported that the Hurricanes won't be offering new contracts to UFA defenseman Brett Pesce and restricted free agent forward Martin Necas. It now appears that Necas has requested a trade.
In an interview with the Czech media outlet Denik Sport, Martin Necas' dad said his son wants to be traded to a team where he can play on the top line and the first powerplay unit.
"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." Andy & Rono said in a post on X.

There will likely be many teams interested in Martin Necas this summer. He's only 25 years old, has had back-to-back 20+ goal seasons, and is improving each year. He would be a good fit for younger teams like the Buffalo Sabres, Detroit Red Wings, or Montreal Canadiens, who are looking to compete for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
It will be interesting to watch this situation as we approach the NHL Entry Draft and free agency on July 1st. Trade talks often pick up around these key dates, so we might see some action regarding Martin Necas soon.
