All they care about is selling papers with nonsensical speculation.

How often does the NY media actually write a good hockey story with good analysis? Actually replace that with any sport except maybe baseball and I can say the same thing.

Also, good analysis and questions don't sell papers. Even further how many times do controversial questions about why the coach is doing X, Y, or Z get answered? Never. Everyone just sticks to the same non-controversial answers. Every now and then you'll get a player like Avery who doesn't give a crap about what anyone thinks and you see what happens.
