JERSEY TRAFFIC REPORT: THERE'S A TIE-UP NEAR THE TURNPIKE
Negotiations between the New Jersey Sports & Exposition
Authority and the Devils have "broken down," according to a
"well-placed" NJSEA official cited by the N.Y. POST. That source
claimed a "gut feeling" that not only would both parties not sign
a long-term lease agreement by the November 1 deadline, but that
the two sides "are indeed headed for court on the original June
breach of contract suit and counter-suits" (Larry Brooks, N.Y.
POST, 10/21). Several reports note the Devils were 3,000 short
of a full-house for their rematch with the Red Wings on Thursday.
