Kaahhhhhhhn! (new co-owner announced)

Quote:
Peter Karmanos Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Owner and Governor of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced Michael Kahn as a partner in the ownership of the Hurricanes. Kahn is the Owner and Governor of Carolina’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

“Both organizations, the Hurricanes and the Checkers, are heavily committed to the growth of hockey in the Carolinas,” Kahn said. “Investing in the Hurricanes not only solidifies my support for Mr. Karmanos and his vision for the sport in the South, but also my support and belief in the growth of the game. The Hurricanes are a top notch organization led by Mr. Karmanos and Mr. Rutherford and I am extremely excited to have been afforded the opportunity to join them. I believe both organizations have very bright futures and I look forward to what is on the horizon for the Hurricanes, Checkers and the sport of hockey itself.”

Relocation to Ceti Alpha V is now imminent?


yeah I've got nothing. An unexpected name out of the carousel of candidates but someone with as many ties to hockey in NC as Kahn has is a huge plus.

Sweet, we can now afford to keep Pitkanen.

I would not be surprised to find that Kahn is actually heading a group of investors (the one's that we kept hearing about). It's good to have two wealthy owners though. *

*How much is Kahn worth?

I'm wondering the same. I'm hoping his pockets are deep.

Kahn seems to have done a quality job with the Checkers so far.

Facebook is in full OMG we moving to Charlotte mode

Sure, they'll probably do more Pre-season games there, but that's it. Chillax.

Having Kahn as part owner is a good thing. He's another guy planted in NC and wants hockey in NC.

The notion that they would up and move to Charlotte is so stupid I can't even bear to go to Facebook and laugh at it.

So a new part-time owner + Detroit moving to the SE should mean more money to spend to put a more competitive team on the ice, yeah?

Any idea what % of an investor he is? 20%?

I wouldn't think it would necessarily mean more money, but who knows for sure. Either way, I think it is a good thing for hockey in NC.

I dunno. I can see a small handful of regular-season games there at some point. It's not that odd for a pro team to move a small portion of their home slate to a nearby city. At the absolute peak of their popularity, the 1986 Celtics team that won 67 games, was 40-1 at home (37-1 at the Boston Garden, 3-0 at the Hartford Civic Center).

It also gives former Thrashers fans an option to see a game just four hours up I-85.

Personally, I'd love to see a four- or five-game Charlotte pack. (Although I'm still not buying any tickets until Maurice is let go.)
