Ever since the NHL season ended, there's been speculation about the trade talks the NHL's GM was entertaining.

Multiple reports confirmed that the Carolina Hurricanes were shopping their star in the making, Martin Necas, a former first-round draft selection. It seemed almost certain that Martin Necas would not remain with the Carolina Hurricanes after the NHL draft. However, as the draft has passed and trade opportunities are diminishing, Necas's chances of staying in Carolina have significantly increased, particularly after filing for arbitration.
Tulsky on Necas: "As of right now he's an RFA with us, headed for arbitration where he'll get either a 1 or 2 year contract. And he'll play for us. If something happens between now and then, then that'll happen. But right now that's what I'd assume."

Tulsky hasn't ruled out a trade scenario, but the consensus is that there is no urgency to trade the Czech forward unless the Hurricanes receive an offer they deem suitable. The teams for which Necas is interested in playing aren't willing to pay the required price, and teams willing to meet said price aren't in the player's range of interest:
Hearing that RFA, Martin Necas is setting himself up for a 1-2 year deal post arbitration which is a 3rd party source finding the median of league price and team price of the player, so expect Martin Necas to be playing for the Carolina Hurricanes for the 2024-2025 season. 🌀

Losing Jake Guentzel to free agency surely affected their willingness to move Necas. As he heads to arbitration, the forward will only be eligible to sign a 1 or 2-year deal, at the end of which a similar debate is expected.
