DEVILS PASS ON CHANCE FOR FUN IN THE SUN
Published November 28, 1994
The Devils have "been offered a chance to move to Orlando, FL -- an opportunity they apparently will pass up." Devils Owner John McMullen told the N.Y. POST that "someone" called him and asked if the Devils would be interested in moving, but that he "hadn't had any further discussions with them." Orlando officials have been looking for a tenant to share the arena with the Magic and "have been approached" from both the IHL and the NHL, according to Howard Tipton, chief administrative officer for the city. But Tipton "would not reveal which NHL team had been involved in the plans." Tipton: "It would involve moving a team. The ownership group represented that they have the approval of the league" (Mark Everson, N.Y. POST, 11/24).
