According to a report by 98.5 Sports in Montreal, Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos wants to get his money out of the team, even if it means the ‘Canes are sold and relocated.

Today’s report comes on the heels of an apparent settlement in the lawsuit involving Karmanos and his three sons — a settlement that could make a sale more likely.

The question all along has been whether Karmanos can find a new owner that’s willing to keep the team in Raleigh.

Karmanos, who moved the franchise from Hartford in 1997, has guaranteed that “the Hurricanes will not become the Nordiques.”

But the 73-year-old has also been trying to sell the team for quite some time.
