07:33 AM ET 09.09 | With camp opening in less than a week, Carolina made a significant change within its front office, firing the club's executive vice president and assistant general manager Jason Karmanos. Karmanos is the son of majority owner Peter Karmanos Jr. and had worked in the organization for 15 years. Peter Karmanos issued a statement Sunday, calling his son's abrupt dismissal a "family matter" and saying he would have no further comment. Jason Karmanos, in an interview Sunday night, said a "personal disagreement" with his father resulted in the firing Sunday morning. "The disagreement I had with my father had nothing to do with the direction of the team or the business of the team," Jason Karmanos said. ... "It's an unfortunate situation and it's extremely disappointing. My emotions are still raw."
