WHALE WATCHING: In Hartford, Jeff Jacobs notes Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy on Thursday during an interview on WWYZ-FM discussed "the legitimate chances" of the NHL returning to Hartford. Malloy said, "If you asked me three years ago, do I think there is a chance of a team coming to Hartford, I would have said no. If you ask me today whether there is a reasonable chance of a team relocating to Hartford or a new franchise in Hartford, I think that's far more possible today than it was three years ago. I've had three separate conversations, with two groups and a national organization that purports to represent a third group." Jacobs: "If there is somebody in state willing to make a big stake in an arena and an NHL team, get out from under the rock and start winning over the public" (HARTFORD COURANT, 4/25).
