Any Questions for Jesse Spector on my radio show tonight?

As most everyone knows by now, I co-host a 100% commercial-free, no one makes a dime from it, Sports Talk radio show on Long Island.

Rangers beat reporter Jesse Spector from the Daily News will be joining us tonight for a Rangers Season Preview.

(I will not post the time, station or web link until the Moderators say it's OK)

Like you've always done before, please post the most important Rangers-related questions that you'd like us to ask Jesse.

As always, thanks.

no questions but make sure you tell that kid that after a bit of a rough start for him he's FAST become one of if not the best beat reporters we have for our team right now. kid gets alot of quotes and is quick to post them. just tell him to keep it up.

Jesse will be on at 9:20 PM tonight.

We're on LI's 90.3FM. We're live on the web 2 ways (video & audio at http://www.sportstalk903.com & audio only at http://www.ncc.edu/whpc)

We'll probably do 30-35 commercial-free minutes of all Rangers talk with Jesse.

As soon as it's humanly possible, we'll post the audio at http://sportstalk903.libsyn.com.

Thanks!

I'd be interested in hearing how if Sather knew that Redden was going to be waived as soon as he could be this year, why the Rangers were not so much as mentioned in the Kovalchuk sweepstakes.

I'm all for the youth movement, but bringing in a 27 year old generational talent doesnt look like it would have hindered out youth movement too much, especially given that entering the season we aren't at the cap, and that the only "youth" up front is Derek Stepan.

good question. still makes no sense to me why we wouldn't be in on him. having a 1 2 punch of gaborik kovalchuk on two different lines to me is a no brainer. unless no one though they could sign kovalchuk to a deal under 8 mil annually. maybe no one thought lou was crazy enough to give out the contract he did after repeated warnings by the nhl. that's why i think they had to be penalized. i think alot more teams are in on kovy if they didn't feel they were going to be in trouble with the league for handing out a contract like that. the kings have said they were no where near that kind of contract in their negotiations.

spector's not going to have an answer for that though as only glen could tell you the reasoning why they didn't go after this guy.

First, tell him how good of a job he's doing, to keep it up, and that those that follow him on twitter and his blogs know that he's become the best beat reporter for us out there and usually gets the quotes up quicker than anyone. It is vastly appreciated.

My question for him is this: The plague of our team is inconsistency. It has in previous years infected the team spirit as a whole, as well as individual players personally. This year, we have more players with 'inconsistency' as an Achilles heel type burden than ever, even amongst some very talented players. The medicine for inconsistency is HUNGER. This year it seems that some of the players have taken their medicine. They seem hungrier this year and more determined. But that's a hard pill to continue swallowing over the course of an 82+ game season. So how do we continue to feed their hunger (wait, is that an oxymoron)? To keep them focused? I always worry when they say their only focus is the next game. That's great and all, but from the second they step out on the ice for the first game to the last second of the last game, their one true goal, belief and relief of the hunger should be winning the Cup period. They need to believe, despite all of us thinking they're years away from it, that as a collective team they ARE good enough. They need to enter and exit the locker room believing they are champions. Believing this is the year they bring the cup back to NY. One ultimate common goal, that as a team as a whole they believe in. The cup. Period. That's the mindset of a winner. Focusing to just win the next game isn't enough. Focusing to just make the playoffs isn't enough. They need to believe from day one that they are winning the cup this year. So the real question is are they of that belief? How do we get them to remain focused on it? Are they capable right now of truly believing in that, despite the odds?

Ok. So that's my question. Long right? But still, it would THRILL me if you read the whole post and asked it to him.

Thanks for your consideration,

Jeremy

It make plenty of sense... Absolutely no cap flexibility with Drury ($7.1 mil), Gaborik ($7.5 mil), and Kovalchuk ($7-8 mil).... And Redden's $6.5 mil counting against the summer cap.... It would be too tight to fill out the rest of the roster and resign RFA's like Cally and Dubi with all of those contracts on the books until Drury's comes off in the 2012 off-season....

If you're not making money off it, why would you pay Jesse to come on?

What are you talking about "paying?" No one's getting paid.

How bad is Vinny's knee, is his career done like some are saying?

Are we really going to see Gilroy and Eminger's crappy defense all year? How impressed were they with Vtank?

Does coaching staff see Stepan as the real deal? How concerned are they with his defense?

Then I'd say that's pretty nice of him to volunteer a half hour of his time for you guys.

He's not P Diddy.... What kind of writer for a newspaper doesn't have 30 minutes to spare on a Thursday evening?

I can understand the cap flexibility issue, but we do have Rozsival coming off this year, and we also have Frolov and Prospal on 1 year deals. There would be plenty of money available to resign dubinsky and callahan. If anything, having less cap space might actually help the youth movement and get more youger players with lower salaries in the lineup.

Then the following year we would get the reprieve from the Drury contract.

I was just wondering his take is on the whole matter.
