Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos has no inhibitions when it comes to speaking his mind. Karmanos tore into Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford for the way he handled the Penguins since taking over as general manager:

Pittsburgh has no first-round picks anymore. They traded their first-round pick from the year before. They traded their first-round pick for this year, and now they’ve traded their first-round pick for next year. But they have Kessel, who may score as many goals as, uh, Alex Semin did (six). And I don’t have to take credit for that.

It's not everyday we see an owner tear into a general manager on another team. Karmano was not done as he referenced the fact Mario Lemieux wants to sell the team:

I think they’ll sell that team for between $700 and $800 million in Pittsburgh, and the cupboard will be pretty bare by that time.

He believes the Penguins do not care because they want to win now and then sell the team. The Penguins have not responded.
