But, criticism of the approach of the Hockey News story which was certainly a few months too late on the subject, the post game story became a story only because we put ourselves into the story.

That's one of the seven deadly sins of journalism.
Just another reason to be disappointed with my profession. So many spectacular writers are stringing, doing PR, selling paint at Home Depot, or are just sitting at home wondering if they'll ever get another job, and this is what is out there.

And, yes, blog posts are usually cleaned up by editors after posting to allow the writer to make the blog as timely as possible. In newspaper stories, writers almost never get to write a headline. On blogs, they usually get the first shot at the headline.
