[Bits] Stadium Series coverage; Devils ownership Coyote drama

"They brought us here in August to discuss the events leaked in April and announced in May." - Andy Marlin

Thank Bossy for manufactured media events and Devils ownership chaos, else there'd be little news in early August.

Somehow, the long-leaked "stadium series" games at Yankee Stadium, which were leaked in April and officially announced in May, were only "previewed" yesterday. In August.

Yet the league pulled the media event off to get decent coverage. That's how desperate we are for hockey talk in summer's dog days. Naturally the big media event was colored by more news of Devils instability.

Stadium Series Coverage:

Video: EJ Hradek with Tavares on the event, on playing outdoor hockey, etc.:

More video, with Matt Moulson on the whole deal. Speaking of whom, Arthur Staple asked about any contract extension talks and Moulson said it's not on his radar right now. "That's what I pay my agent for" is a pretty sweet answer going forward.

Last word goes to the FIGmeister:
