In DC, Tarik El-Bashir cited sources as confirming that discussions for a November 28 Capitals-Canadiens game at Montreal's Olympic Stadium "are dead," and the teams instead will play the game at Bell Centre as scheduled. Plans for the game at the 70,000-plus-seat stadium reportedly were nixed because of the possibility of the CFL Alouettes "playing deep into the postseason." If that were to happen, the NHL "would not have enough time to properly prepare the stadium" to install a rink (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 8/24).

Kehoe also cited "uncertainty about the future of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, which came up during discussions about selling off state property this year" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 8/25).
