Canes Staying Put

from the AP via Ft. Wayne.com,
On the day the NHL officially came back, Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos insisted his team is doing the same - for good. He put to rest any thoughts to the contrary Friday night after returning from New York, where the league showed off its new labor agreement and its new rules. During a news conference on the club level at the RBC Center, Karmanos, also the chairman and chief executive officer of the software company Compuware, said he has no interest in moving the franchise and it never has been for sale. "I don't recall ever putting the team up for sale, or even coming close to that," Karmanos said. "My guys tell me that's a real concern around here, and I am just absolutely amazed by it." When pressed on the issue, he brusquely added, "Unequivocally, I'm not going to sell the team and it's never been for sale, all right? Ever, not since I bought it."
