I know I'll be tuning in, hopefully Bettman asks real questions, but I doubt it.

Screened. The NHL will screen every call and be ready for the quick hangup.

Its unlikely theyll be able to tip toe around most of whats being talked about in the press. Should get atleast a few answers off an hour of talk.

I'll be tuning in but not hopeful that anything will really be said besides Snow's plan and Wang *****ing about the lighthouse and money.

Anyone here the update about 10 minutes ago, they were like well the last place Islanders are facing Tampa tonight, with18 points on the season but hey at least they got a new locker room!

Franchise is a total joke.

The question to ask...

I don't know if questions will be taken, but two that must be asked are:

  1. To Wang: Garth Snow keeps telling the fans that he's allowed to spend money on getting players, but how come you don't spend any money on the front office, which would cost less than your average free agent?

  2. To Wang: You keep saying that you don't subscribe to the *normal* way of doing things and that going "outside of the box" is how you have, and will, run the Islanders. However how much more losing are you prepared to take before you start running things like teams who win the Stanley Cup do?

There is going to be literally nothing said on this show, it's going to be Bettman stroking Wang/Snow the whole hour.

This...and we're sure to hear alot about the bad bounces this team has had over the last month and a 1/2.

Also, DiPi injury is not serious...just being cautious. And we remain committed to him.

No comment on Botta...and if he's pressed on it, he'll say it was a private decision.

Committed to Cap, but we'll explore our options when necessary.

No comment on the arena or Lighthouse...just that they will not play in that arena beyond 2015.

No comment on Peltz or Queens or Brooklyn or LaFontaine.

There, I saved you the trouble of listening to it.

The format is Gary takes calls before and after his guests are on, but not during. I'm a regular listener (of the podcast of it). It's usually pretty interesting for what it is. I think it's brilliant that he makes himself available like this. It is what you expect; he spins his answers, but the simple fact he's trying to be accessible is great.

Unfortunately, far too many people call in to whine about their cable package or what games get blacked out on Center Ice. Should be interesting to see how he handles Wang and Snow.

You know, I'm no big fan of Wang, but I'm not sure you need to make fun of how he talks. English would be his second language, after all. How's your accent for your second language?

One look at the NHL press release about this tells you all you need to know about what kind of fluff piece, I mean interview this will be.

All things Islanders, including all the players at the WJC and the team's charitable holiday initiatives..... yeah, that is exactly what us fans have been clamoring to know about.

Sometimes I wonder how stupid these two clowns are to think that these scripted appearances are making them look better, when if anything, it just serves to piss the fans off even more.

Yea, let's knock it off with making fun of Wang's accent when he provides other things to make fun of.

I personally thought that post was hilarious, sorry, but I seriously could not stop laughing for like 10 minutes. I cannot wait to hear the latest BS from Gawf and Chawles tomorrow, ahahahahahahahaha.

Unless Wang opens the interview with "I've decided to sell the team", I don't want to hear it.

Yeah, this is bugging me a bit too. The Elmer Fudd-like voice is probably a direct result of him being born elsewhere.
