WHAT IN THE DEVILS IS GOING ON?
Published March 13, 1995
"The Devils are not moving to Tennessee," according to Barry Meisel of the N.Y. DAILY NEWS. But he notes that team owner John McMullen did meet with Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen on Thursday (see THE DAILY, 3/10). An NHL source adds that Gaylord Entertainment Pres & CEO Dick Evans mediated the meeting. Gaylord (owner of The Nashville Network) wants to buy the Devils and move them to TN. But one "prominent sports executive" in Nashville said Friday he believes McMullen is "simply using the town as leverage to improve the Devils' lease" with the NJ Sports and Exposition Authority (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 3/11).
