As Jyrgen stated, he's working for one of our two national tabloids.
Assigned to cover whatever can be assumed to be interesting to the Swedish readers. From politics to sports, from entertainment to natural disasters and from coast to coast.

The reason why his post-game post always is late is that he has to provide the paper with the "proper" article about the game first.

One nice side-effect of his "proper" job is that when he's shipped away from NYC to cover something else, he often tries to sneak into any other NHL game he can find.

The best would be to focus on the pre-game and post-game posts, since they often contain the funniest or most interesting for outsiders. Quite much of the other contains so much yapping between "Mr Editor" and his readers that most of it doesn't make sense unless you've read (and understood) the comment trail on the previous post(s)
