Although captain Eric Staal has been mentioned as an untouchable several times throughout the season, starting netminder Cam Ward could be moved as part of the solution.
The 27-year-old holds a $6.3 million cap hit, which runs through the 2014-15 season, and has posted a .909 save percentage and 2.86 goals-against-average in 44 games so far.
The Hurricanes are currently sitting in last place of the Eastern Conference and could get a significant return for Ward if he does hit the market, as the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Columbus Blue Jackets are amongst teams that have been shopping for a veteran goaltender for many weeks now.
Meanwhile, TFP has learned that the Hurricanes are close to signing defenseman Tim Gleason to a new contract.
Gleason is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and has been highly coveted by several teams. If he inks a new deal, it's believed the Hurricanes will not trade him this season.
