Any questions for Okposo and Bailey?

This week I'll be shooting an interview with both of them for Maxim.com. They guy conducting the interview is a hockey fan, BUT he roots for the Devils.

Any Isles fans here have a good question for these two?

So Sean Avery working for vogue is gay but this guy working for Maxim is a "cool job"? I see how it is

I'd love to know for Bailey what it was like to spend his first year in the NHL on a team as dysfunctional as the Isles were last year. Obviously would have to be worded more politically correctly, but I'd love to know what the experience was like as opposed to this year, which has been a lot more exciting.

Whether it be your team losing the first 6 games of the season or you personally not doing well, what keeps you motivated when you dont seem to be catching any breaks?

Did you know much about the islanders before you were drafted?

Did you picture yourself on any particular team before being drafted?

Is the general attitude inside the NHL towards the Islanders the same as fans perceive it on the outside? (I.E. not respected, not competitive, bad management, etc...)

Of course you see it breaks down like this:

Magazine in which girls talk about the clothes they have on:gay

Magazine in which girls have their clothes (mostly) off: Awesome!

What do other players in the NHL think about the islanders?
What do you like to do off the ice?
How is Rick Dipietro, and have you seen him lately?

Does being in Maxim(.com) mean they made it in life?

Ask them where they live fulltime.

When Chuck Norris goes to sleep, does he check for Kyle Okposo under his bed?

Okposo has said that Forsberg and Ignila are two of his favorite players.

Who else did he follow closely as a kid?

I do have a question, one for both of them in fact.

They seemed to develop some chemistry last season. This year, they haven't played together at all and Bailey has struggled in many ways, especially offensively while Okposo has failed to look like he meshes with any other linemates, despite mild success with Tavares and Moulson. How do they feel about that? Has Gordon given them any clear-cut reason why he isn't playing the two of them together when they'd seem to be such a logical match?

I don't think it's going to be that kind of interview.

Here are a few ideas.

Which Islanders teammate has helped you the most with your game?
How do Islanders fans treat you guys?
What's your favorite thing about the Islanders/Rangers rivalry?
If you could pick a player off your biggest rival and have him play on your team who would it be and why?
What would you say to any player who was unsure about playing on Long Island?
Who is the biggest ladies' man on your team?
If you had to choose- city girls or suburb girls?
Which of your fellow players would have the toughest time growing a playoff beard? (Tell the writer that's a good time to remind everyone that the Isles are the team that started the idea of playoff beards in the first place.)

Ask KO what he thinks about Dion Phaneuf...

Ask them how they like Long Island as a place to live (rather then a place to play hockey)

Even though they're NHL players do they ever get kinda star struck playing against certain players who they may have rooted for only a few years ago?

I know you were being sarcastic, but I do amateur photography and honestly would be in awe if I could make money doing hockey shoots. Its a pretty sick job.

Ok, got ya. Maxim... right.

Then I'd be curious as to how they compare the LI girls to the ladies back in Minnesota and Ontario, respectively.
