Everybody wants to be involved in the Martin Necas trade; many headlines have been written since it was revealed that he could be out of Carolina as soon as Saturday.

Frank Seravalli broke the news that it wouldn't surprise him if the winger wound up being traded by game one of the Stanley Cup Final that will oppose the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers. Since the Hurricanes were eliminated in these playoffs in the second round, Necas has known that he wanted a chance to prove his true worth and an opportunity to do more for his team. With the Hurricanes' loaded offence, there might not be an opportunity for the Czech.
Without a surprise, the reports show that just about half the league called on the 2017 first-round pick. According to the insider Frank Seravalli, three teams are constantly involved in those talks, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks:

Rick Dhaliwal confirms it for the Canucks and Martin Necas

The early thought was that the Canucks would be looking to involve Filip Hronek in any trade talks for Martin Necas. The Canucks insider Rick Dhaliwal addressed the situation and confirmed that Patrik Allvin was in the mix:
Still in the mix, I don't think offering up a guy like Hronek will get that done...That's a tough deal to do.

A tough deal to do, will this translate into a bigger deal? One that could involve other pieces or perhaps other pending free agents? If the Canucks do move away from Filip Hronek, they'll need another right-handed defenceman to play by Quinn Hughes' side. The Canes have Brett Pesce, who's bound to hit the market and fit the bill. Could his rights be a part of that deal?
The Canucks and the Canes have been linked in trade talks through a big part of the last season, and the constant has always been Martin Necas. Is the Czech bound to be a Canuck?
