MCMULLEN MOVED BY FANS' EMOTION, BUT NOT MOVED FAR ENOUGH
Published July 11, 1995
Devils Owner John McMullen said yesterday, "I was very affected by the rally. The rally definitely had an effect." McMullen also said the state and the Devils are unlikely to reach an agreement before a scheduled court hearing today, "But we're holding out hope," according to the Bergen RECORD. The RECORD's Pennington & Fitzgerald note McMullen indicated he is still "disappointed" that the state refuses to let the Devils take over management of Byrne Arena (Bergen RECORD, 7/11). Richard Sandomir writes that Nashville "is fading fast as the potential future home" of the Devils. Sandomir, on those who are speculating that a deal is done, "They're way ahead of themselves if they're saying that" (N.Y. TIMES, 7/11). Larry Brooks writes, "Again, until it is done, it is not done, until the Devils or NHL announce a home schedule for the Meadowlands, there is no way to know for sure" (N.Y. POST, 7/11). TOO BUSY FOR BILL? Only nine members of the Devils made the trip for a reception at the White House with President Clinton, according to the RECORD. Lenn Robbins notes the players who did not attend cited a combination of "short notice and prior commitments" (Bergen RECORD, 7/11).
