Canes Will Pay Laviolette

from the CP via TSN,
Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos expects to re-sign head coach Peter Laviolette, and he says he'll match any other team's offer in order to keep him. But would he match any offer to Laviolette? ''Of course we would,'' said Karmanos. ''But if somebody has been tampering to set up a leverage position, we would take a very strong stand on that, too.'' Karmanos said he intends to retire as head of Compuware within the next two years. Commuting from the Detroit region has its upside, he said. ''Sometimes there's a distinct advantage to not being around.'' How's that? ''When you're losing,'' he said.
