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).
