Laviolette Happy In Carolina- But…

from the News & Observer,
Peter Laviolette's old job is open again. The job he wanted five years ago may be open again soon. And his contract with the Carolina Hurricanes is up at the end of the season. Karmanos acknowledged that without a new contract, the Canes could face stiff competition to retain Laviolette in the offseason -- particularly if the U.S. Olympic team coached by Laviolette is as impressive as the Canes have been this season. After all, there's no salary cap on coaches. "I'm always concerned about that," Karmanos said. "We hopefully have a good enough relationship that we'd have the right of first refusal. And we do have that kind of relationship with most of the people in the organization. Peter's done a yeoman job."
