  • AND ALL THOSE HOO'S DOWN IN HOBOKEN LIKE THE DEVILS A LOT!

              Devils Owner John McMullen will hold a press conference
         today at Hoboken City Hall where he is expected to announced
         his "grand plan to move the Devils to a new arena,"
         according to Jon Gelberg of the Newark STAR-LEDGER.  
         According to sources, McMullen's conference will include
         architectural plans for a new arena, a "map of a
         reconfigured Hoboken, one with a new train station, new
         roads and new parking facilities," and an economic
         feasibility study.  McMullen will claim that the New Jersey
         Sports & Exposition Authority "has not lived up to its
         obligations under the team's current lease," set to end
         after the 2006-2007 season.  He also "believes" the NJSEA
         has had "secret discussions" with Yankees Owner George
         Steinbrenner about moving the Yankees (STAR-LEDGER, 12/19).
