AND ALL THOSE HOO'S DOWN IN HOBOKEN LIKE THE DEVILS A LOT!
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).
