I think our beat writers do a great job.

Not too long ago there was a time when we received absolutely no coverage during training camps, no daily updates, etc. Everyone clamors when we don't hear anything official on an injury after 4 hours these days - think about when we didn't even know who the starting goalie was until warmups that night.

Of course we have social media and the blogosphere to thank, but these beat writers actually have a job to write articles for their publications and spend a lot of extra time providing us with daily, sometimes hourly updates. (Obviously its part of their job now to get hits on their blog domains)

I think they do a fantastic job, especially Gross who's my favorite. Loved Sam he was great too. I don't see Cerny as a beat guy, because he works for the team and the Rangers propaganda oozes out of him like slime.
