The futures of three of the team's biggest players -- Jeff Skinner, Eric Staal, Cam Ward -- along with members of the Canes front office, are all currently in question according to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger.
TFP first reported earlier this season that Ward could potentially be on the way out of Carolina this summer.
Ward, who went down with an injury at the start of the season, has been overshadowed during the regular season by the play of his goaltending counterpart Anton Khudobin. The 29-year-old has only 25 starts this season, recording a 8-11-5 record, a .893 save percentage, and 3.14 goals against average.
Ward is currently in his fourth-year of a six-year, $37.8 million contract that includes a no-trade clause.
In addition to changes in goaltending, Dreger also pointed to 21-year-old Skinner as a potential trade target. In December, TFP reported that the Toronto Maple Leafs inquired about Skinner's availability, along with several other clubs.
Skinner has 44 points in 58 games with the Canes this season. He is currently in his second year of a six-year, $34.3 million deal.
Dreger also reported that Staal could be moved, primarily for financial reasons. Coaching changes could also be imminent depending on the direction GM Jim Rutherford wants to take with the club.
