Happy to say that Bingo and I will be ripping off our first edition of CP Radio of the 2011/2012 season tomorrow night @ 8:30 PM MST.
We will be changing our live feed for this season - Ustream is now using a model where it feeds advertisements to the listeners. Instead we will be using a service called blogtalkradio.
Tomorrow night will be the first time we use this new system - so there will be a bit of learning curve to contend with - but I'll be interested to get everyone's feedback on how it sounds and what not.
I will also provide the new link for the show tomorrow night just before show-time. You'll also be able to download the show after the fact via this site or on iTunes.
There's lots of talk about getting rid of coach Sutter. People seem to want a team blow up but yet still blame the coach for not getting results? Which is it not good/deep/skilled enough players or a coach not getting out of them what he should be able to? I also don't think his last name is helping him. Panel thoughts?
Canuck insulter and proud of it.

Don't insult other members; even if they are Canuck fans.

Coaching and player overhauls. Working rebulid over 2 years (starting this deadline - who to target, keep and bring up) and maybe going after Boudreau from the Capitals - seems to have fallen out of favour in DC.
Would like to hear your opinons on the players we recently called up. More specificly, wether we should continue this youth movement with the intent of trading some vets before the trade deadline.
Maybe, if you have time, you can also touch on the state of our prospect pool and the likely hood that we may see as many as seven quality players 23 or younger on our roster as soon as next season. (Backlund, Horak, Byron, Brodie, Bouma, Nemisz and Bartschi)
I would like to hear a discussion on Horak and Smith being told they will stay all year with the Flames. Possibility of Byron and Brodie staying up and for how long and injury discussion on Morrison, Moss, and Carson.
Welcome back guys, I'm excited to hear the show again!
In 2003-04 the Flames had that amazing run to the playoffs and hope was back for Calgary Flames fans. In 2006 they won the division and Kipper won the Vezina. We had one of the premier superstars in the league and the future looked bright. In 2007-2009 the Flames put together some solid regular seasons but playoff success was elusive. And now we're back where we were 10 years ago looking at several consecutive years out of the playoffs.
This downward trend since 2004 has probably had many reasons, but what was the turning point? Was it the Phaneuf trade? The choice to sign Bouwmeester instead of re-signing Cammalleri? The firing of Mike Keenan?
I know it is more fun to discuss the future, but I am really interested to hear your takes on how we got into this mess.
Please post any comments/questions and what not in this thread.
This is the first time using blogtalkradio so it would be great to get feedback on the sound - and of course just an initial word that you can in fact here us.
