NASHVILLE MAYOR MEETS WITH THE DEVILS' MCMULLEN
Published March 10, 1995
Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen said yesterday that he met with Devils Owner John McMullen, but that the team's "long term lease is preventing talks about a move to Nashville," according to this morning's TENNESSEAN. The city of Nashville has been trying to land an NHL team to play in their $120M arena under construction. Bredesen said that McMullen has visited Nashville and has met with him, but Bredesen said the "city is not ready to talk with any team that is not 'legally, morally, and ethically' in a position to move" (Mark Ippolito, The TENNESSEAN, 3/10).
