RUMORS FOLLOWING DEVILS THROUGH THE PLAYOFFS
Published May 9, 1995
As the Devils prepared to play the Bruins in Game 2 of the playoffs, rumors of the team's move to Nashville "fueled speculation and discussion" around the team, according to today's N.Y. TIMES. And, top Devils officials "keep refusing to deny the rumor." Yesterday, Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen and City Council officials held a news conference announcing the formation of a sports authority to look into the possibility of attracting an NHL franchise to the city. According to Bredesen, Devils Chair John McMullen visited Nashville and inspected the new 20,000-seat arena. Devils President and GM Lou Lamoriello acknowledged that McMullen was in Nashville, but said it was for a celebrity golf tournament (Alex Yannis, N.Y. TIMES, 5/9). In Toronto, Bob McKenzie writes, "There's a better than even chance there'll be as many as three relocations alone in the next month or two." On the Devils, McKenzie writes that they are "going to move. Only question is whether it's now or in a few years" On Quebec, he writes, "There is a much better chance of the Nordiques leaving La Belle Province than there is of them staying" (TORONTO STAR, 5/9).
