Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. wants to sell 49 percent of the team, preferably to a local investor or group of investors, and has hired a New York investment firm to help with the sale.
Karmanos said he has no intent of selling the team. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said too much is being made of ownership changes and reorganizations.
What do you think? Is there anything unsettling or worrisome about this recent development, or is Bettman right? And what are the chances Karmanos will be able to find someone or some group locally to buy into the team?
The floor is open.
