  1. Debate Preview NY Daily News's Ken Lovett

    Wed, 22 Oct 2014

    With the New York governor debate is tonight in buffalo joining us on the WB and lifeline Camelot that with the New York Daily News he's the Albany bureau chief Ken good morning. Good morning set the stage for us what you think we're in for tonight with this. Hook I think we're gonna see a little bit of fireworks perhaps it's not going to be. As good as the one on one debate we've got to two main candidates Governor Cuomo and Republican run that story you know but we also have. My the party candidates at the insistence of the governor of Green Party candidate Howard Hawkins and libertarian. Michael McDermott which I defy you to find some of them even heard of Michael Mick and. Can what you expected and to be the main issue tonight. Do you think it might be the way the governor dealt with a Moreland commission or fracking or what do you think. I think it's going to be all of that I think yeah this is the shot barrage that's still Leno he's hit Cuomo. On the economy he says Cuomo on the moral and commission and the handling of the leak. Subsequent investigation by the federal of the US attorney. Hydro fracking obviously is the big issue so I think depending on who's talking Sally Hawkins is gonna hit the governor. I'm. I don't backing because Hawkins as opposed to whether he says that you know you can take up the fact of the governor's. Office apparently pushed for changes in the study that was done about Hydro fracking. Absolutely you know cut the truth Q parties got it on the attack. Against the governor of the first kind of well you know they'll be in the same Blake got together but on the other hand. He's got to show who he is and what he's gonna do you have to put out an affirmative. Affirmative platform of the don't. Are as Governor Cuomo he's right now according to Siena holding a twenty point lead here over history in Graham. Governor global got to do is make no mistakes he he can't pull up he can't look like he's forty can't look like. He's. And your beliefs and stage he's gonna have to. Talk about his record which I'm sure he's gonna do and contrast to himself that he's been doing. With the rob actually know who he calls an ultra conservative. The debate being from buffalo I am pretty sure he's also gonna talk about. The buffalo billions something my best to win those criticized and all the new construction going on. And I can you mentioned a hallway Hawkins and we'll stand on the Hydro fracking. What do you suppose is minor candidates. Might say otherwise you know we know that they're going to be asked to. Respond to specific issues but there's always a chance they're gonna pump their own agenda. Little by helicopter in the big thing is Hydro fracking I think that's going to be is his big point. And the reality is about how he Hawkins lucky poles with 9% that's. Hawkins has the potential to do more damage to Cuomo's. Ultimate result then even after Reno at school I was consistently polling at about 33% which is really the normal Republican kind of should turn out that the base Republican support. But the government wanted to be more international purposes and also he wanted to probably top the father who got about 64%. When he ran for reelection in 86. But you'll have to Hawkins gets 910%. 8%. That drags the governor down just don't have a big win over west Toledo but it dragged for governor into the mid to low fifties and that's something he doesn't want. So they could actually play spoiler in a way. While spoiler to the point that the governor you know don't get the margin or the percentage of victory you want to certainly. We all polls show he's up by at least 20% in debt so we'll have a big wins but it may not be so hyper when he wants. This is the only debate of the season. Yeah rather Bruno has been pushing that issue he has wanted a series of regional one on one debate. He also what I had wanted at least one televise a televised one on one debate the governor refused he had offered up doing ache. One on one radio debates prior to ask enough good noted that. You would think he would have taken a given his word is in the polls and how far is and fundraising. And taken it in the bill passed and governor brewer. NAFTA and the one on one televised debate but he duty said he wouldn't do the one on the radio. Ken thanks for joining us this morning appreciate it. Bureau aren't that's Ken Lovett he's the Albany bureau chief for the New York Daily News.

Let's take a moment to talk more about the NHL draft lottery last night. The Buffalo Sabres despite having the worst record of any team this year actually came second in the lottery -- have the second pick in the draft coming up. WBN's Brian as a -- he's with us now he was in Toronto for that events yesterday. And has some behind the scenes color and -- Bryan behind the scenes color yeah what does it look like well it it looked like TV studio it's not very. I when you see the lottery happened at night on the nightly news it's pretty exciting bring out the big machine -- -- has big ball spinning absolutely and she's all very excited who's gonna be the next millionaire here it's very different. I didn't see single lottery ball the entire time in Toronto -- there was this where was little thing I was held at the TSN studio and they do the actual lottery drawing with the balls in pride it's. And then they have cards that show. Who's the eighth who's this and cruising down down until Liggett to as the number one pick. When they actually made the pick did did Florida -- did to Emery of the sabres throws had sat down on the side of the field nothing like that no nothing like that and really that's to be expected to Murray said he's driving up here it's almost what he expected 25% chance. A finishing first overall. You have a better chance of picking second so it's kind of what he expected that's what he said after. And in this case it's not like next year where you're missing out on the next great superstar and economy David or anything like that picking second. Isn't that bad of of the slot for the sabres they'll still have their pick of a great forward if they want to maybe -- top defenseman and now the big thing becomes. Will they have two picks in the top five many expect and I have two picks in the top five because the islanders. Have the option of sending over the fifth overall pick to buffalo or. Sending over their first round pick next year which they don't know -- that's gonna land and so this it was gonna end up with pick number two. And picked number five. It's the most exciting part of the sabres season and that happens after the -- incidentally it. When are we gonna find out now if we are gonna have to picture after after the playoffs so the islanders have. Until after the playoffs until I believe it's June 30 to decide if they're going to move the pick. I'd Tim Murray after. The lottery happened said that he thinks now that the islanders have lost the lottery -- pick number five and in this year's drafters. Really for. Players whoever one's rates is being rates and then there's a little bit of a drop off to that fifth player. You'd think that they're more. Willing to part with that fifth overall pick right now -- hopes of maybe getting a better draft pick next year so there -- expecting. I feel that they'll end up with pick number two and a number of initiatives some great players. Prospects but. No Patrick Kane knows Sidney Crosby and no Sidney Crosby's thirty. -- know Patrick -- until you see these guys inaction. When you look at the sabres right now and you look for years down the road. Thinking that next year while they could wind up in the same -- they can win another ten games and still be the worst team in the league. They're gonna end up with another great player next year most likely in the draft. They could end up with two great players two great forwards in this year's draft. Add -- to some of the pieces they already have a Gergen since 84 Leno conscience there to blossom they have some good prospects on defense. And when you take these players who. People are excited about but he said no one's going guy -- over -- electors Sidney Crosby. But you take these players and you put them with a whole lot of other players who are very very talented. You're gonna have a good team. Was -- the delegate from the sabres was coach -- there are no one was not there -- was there are. And I believe -- black mr. believe -- him but Emery was the one who talked. He was one of a few GMs there Brian Burke the -- from Calgary. Florida cents a vice president of hockey operations there. So he he was -- was the meaning guys the guy ever -- the top -- because that room was expecting as receivers to -- up with one of the top two picks and a gruesome media picked number five and he sounds like a pretty cool cucumber very low key guy at a very low key event very low key I mean. I'm thinking back to the press conference were Ted Nolan was given a contract extension. And access to make an opening statement. And he says while Ted Nolan. Does a great job. Gonna have them as our coach. And that's it he's a good thing and a few words and -- -- it on the snack table. Other rescinded pastries but I didn't need now don't trust the Canadian -- so I stayed. There again all right WBN's Brian -- --
