The other thing about the tennessean that you fail to mention is that you had a beat writer in John Glennon, that did not have an ounce of passion for hockey.
His articles were stale and showed no creativity. He rarely went behind the scenes or added any analysis. It was basically just news wire reporting stuff.

Fast forward, the new beat writers, Jim Diamond and Josh Cooper [but to a much lesser extent David Boclair] have seemed to embrace the blogosphere writers and interact and seem to see them as near equals and developed together a info machine and following that has its own substantial contribution to buzz and the butts in the seats surge that we have seen over the past 2-3 yrs.
