"I haven't made a decision yet," Williams said according to NHL.com's Kurt Dusterberg. "You don't do those things irrationally. You put thought into it. You find out inside whether you have the full capabilities emotionally and physically to do it. I put everything I had into it this year. If I have everything again, then I'll be here."
The 37-year-old is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but Williams made it clear that he'd like to remain in Carolina should he sign another NHL contract.
"I've set up shop here and I'm very comfortable here," he said. "I'm not quite sure where anything else would go."
Williams won one of his three Stanley Cups with the Hurricanes in 2006, and said he was proud to make the team relevant again this season.
The veteran led the Hurricanes to the Eastern Conference Final in their first postseason appearance since 2009. In 15 playoff contests, he contributed four goals and seven points.
