NJ Gov. Christine Todd Whitman responded that the Devils, "have a contract to the year 2010" when asked if Owner John McMullen had a deadline for accepting the NJSEA's arena improvement offer to stay. Whitman, according to the Nashville TENNESSEAN: "That's our deadline." Whitman added, "The only escape clause they have is if they notify the [NJSEA] by 1998-99 that they want to stop playing here by 2002" (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 6/14). THE SPORTING NEWS' Larry Wigge writes that NJ businessman Robert Brennen's $65M offer should satisfy an NHL bylaw that prevents a franchise from moving if a prospective local buyer is willing to take over the team (THE SPORTING NEWS, 6/19 issue).
