NASHVILLE MAYOR MEETS WITH THE DEVILS' MCMULLEN
Nashville Mayor Phil Bredesen said yesterday that he met
with Devils Owner John McMullen, but that the team's "long term
lease is preventing talks about a move to Nashville," according
to this morning's TENNESSEAN. The city of Nashville has been
trying to land an NHL team to play in their $120M arena under
construction. Bredesen said that McMullen has visited Nashville
and has met with him, but Bredesen said the "city is not ready to
talk with any team that is not 'legally, morally, and ethically'
in a position to move" (Mark Ippolito, The TENNESSEAN, 3/10).
