In the past few hours, the reputable Pierre LeBrun confirmed that Kent Hughes called the Carolina Hurricanes about a trade involving Martin Necas.

This makes the situation very serious, confirming that the Canadiens would like to get their hands on the 25-year-old forward.
However, even though he is a restricted free agent this summer, there is obviously a price to pay.

Pierre LeBrun weighs in on what the Hurricanes are asking from Kent Hughes in exchange for Martin Necas

Unfortunately for Montreal, Carolina does not want prospects or draft picks; they want players who are ready to play in the NHL immediately.
«That said, Pierre LeBrun also states that the Hurricanes do not want picks or prospects in return for Necas.

The Carolina team wants an established player because their window is still wide open.» - Marc-Olivier Cook, DLC

They want an established player, but they cannot afford to pay a player like Cole Caufield a salary close to $8 million.
In the Montreal Canadiens' camp, they will therefore ask for players like Alex Newhook, Kirby Dach, and possibly a player like Logan Mailloux because he is ready to play in the NHL and is very inexpensive. ($875,000 for two more seasons)
So, it's a situation to follow, but it definitely complicates things.
Would you trade an Alex Newhook, a Kirby Dach, or a Logan Mailloux to get your hands on the 6-foot-2 Hurricanes forward who scored 71 points last season?
A young player like Joshua Roy, who is very affordable and ready to contribute in the NHL, could also evidently interest them.
Necas also added 9 points in 11 games during the 2024 playoffs and 53 points in 77 games this season.
He should sign a 7 to 8-year contract, bringing him $7 to $7.5 million per year.
