The name Martin Necas continues to circulate abundantly on the trade market and with the Montreal Canadiens.

When such a good player becomes available, it's certain to generate buzz and attract a lot of interest.
However, the question that has been coming up the most recently regarding the Carolina Hurricanes forward is the following:
What is the price to acquire Martin Necas? Here is the answer.

Martin Necas is expected to sign a contract of 6 to 8 years with an annual value of 7 to 7.5 million dollars per year

We already know Martin Lemay's (BPM Sports and RDS) answer, but would you do it at that price?
«There is a lot of interest in the NHL for Martin Necas, but the Canes must first have a conversation with him and his agent. Many clubs are curious. This could be an interesting scenario this summer.»

- David Pagnotta

«We will discuss this more on TFP later in the day, but the general consensus from league sources is that Martin Necas will be in line for a 6 to 8-year contract with an annual salary of 7 to 7.5 million dollars.»

- Anthony Di Marco

This will therefore be a really interesting file to follow in the National Hockey League and with the Montreal Canadiens. 7 to 7.5 million dollars per year would be logical with the salary scale established by Kent Hughes and it would be lower than the contracts signed by Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield. (and lower than the future long-term contract of Juraj Slafkovsky)
It is recalled that the Canes have clearly stated that their priority will be to re-sign Jake Guentzel and Seth Jarvis, and at this amount, it seems to confirm that Necas has obviously played his last game in Carolina.
Necas, 25 years old, who can play as a center or a winger, is a first-round pick of 2017. He accumulated 53 points in 77 games this season (9 points in 11 playoff games) and he had accumulated 71 points last season.
