Today Elliotte Friedman went around the NHL and covered a wide range of topics including the potential buyout of Jesperi Kotkaniemi by the Carolina Hurricanes this summer.

It is no secret that Jesperi Kotkaniemi has struggled to live up to the contract he was given by the Carolina Hurricanes. With the Hurricanes up against the salary cap for next season, many expected Jesperi Kotkaniemi to be a buyout candidate. However, Elliotte Friedman believes that the Hurricanes are not interested in a buyout.
EF gets the sense Necas will be moved. Both don't see eye to eye anymore. EF has heard from a source that #CauseChaos won't buy out Kotkaniemi, the team thinks they have a real player there

Despite not being bought out there is still the possibility that Jesperi Kotkaniemi has a new home next season. Elliotte Friedman confirms that several teams will likely have an interest in trading for Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Martin Necas this summer.
EF says Necas was in a potential Petterson to CAR deal. Also wonders if #Canucks are still interested in Necas. Wonders about a Hronek for Necas swap type of deal

EF has heard on Kotkaniemi, that other teams including VAN are interested should he be made available

With so many possibilities on the table for the Carolina Hurricanes this summer things could get wild. Depending on whether GM Don Waddell stays or goes could impact which players are kept and which are moved to their new homes.
Once the Carolina Hurricanes determine the direction of their team going forward we will provide all of the latest updates.
