Glad I'm not watching tonight after that. Perhaps this is why we are down 6-2?

Edit: @ DJ Dave... what were you thinking? This absolutely blows. Bring back U2.

I thought the U2 was a little tired and played out but they replaced that with this?????

Maybe the worst opening in the league. Honestly, I am a little embarrassed by this.

I hope this is just one of those welcome back fans thing and not a permanent intro. Enough with trying to be dramatic, it's time to actually get some energy to the players and fans. This combined with Sarah McLachlan's anthem is not a good way to kick off a game.

Totally agree. Why would they choose Sarah to start the season? It was a huge buzzkill! Update on the home page also says they won't be sticking with this intro and will be trying a few until they find the right one.

i say they keep it simple, canucks hockey (when theyre playing good) is uptempo fast paced, offensive hockey, guys like edler, kassian, hammer, ballard dish out big hits.. play some freaking metal. Im a hip hop guy, but certain genres are meant for certain situations. metallica - fuel!!! pump up the damn crowd

I like the U2 intro, but IMO I think this should be given a try



Or at least the first 40 seconds

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I thought the build-up part with Finale was pretty cool, but it kinda fell flat when the players came on the ice. I would prefer something with a little more hair on its balls for when the players are actually coming out of the tunnel. Although I will make an exception for U2 since I have so many memories with that song.

No ones gonna agree on anything here. :picard:

I don't know why we still argue about this.

Just enjoy what we have.

Loving the "Language" by Porter Robinson and the rest of it, much better than "I want to Run, I want to hide" U2.

After six or seven months without hockey, the Canucks kick started the season with the weakest intro they could have possibly come up with. Absolutely terrible.

Watch Bowness somehow mess up Tampa Bay's already amazing 2 powerplay units...he'll probably tell Stamkos to do drop passes from centre ice, take him out from the faceoff dot, and place him infront of the goalie :lol:

Yeah the music to the opening video was meh and the change into the entrance music had no buildup. It was just a nondescript, bland pop mess.

U2 again please.

Everyone keep an eye on the Fort Nucks/Project NU2 page. They're apparently going to rotate the opening music and there may be a chance to make yourself heard on the options.

Strangely, while the reaction to the new intro has been unfavourable thus far on CDC, there are more 'likes' than 'dislikes' on the Youtube clip. :blink:

Yeah, won't be able to please everyone no matter what's chosen, but how did that song even seem like a good idea? It doesn't even look like the crowd even realized anything was happening until the players started coming out, really lame song.

was at the game. Pure garbage intro. the video, music selection. The intro music... wtf was that?

DJ Dave is horrible.

I'm sure the 14 year olds on CDC were dancing along wearing their skinny jeans.

and how the hell can you be off for 8 months or whatever and still play the same identical songs and essentially at the same times?

Music selection is absolutely terrible. I'm not even a rock n roll guy personally but it goes with hockey. NOT Rihanna and Pitbull every 3rd freakin song.

And what's up with stupid sounds of explosions and firecrackers added in with the goal song? I can just picture DJ Dave up there with his $50 electronic keyboard that has the custom sounds and he's pushing away on them.

They sound terrible. Period.

A lot of people lost their jobs during the lockout, unfortunately the wrongs ones apparently kept theirs.

This new intro is embarrassing. I dont understand what is so hard about making a good intro. Play an intense rock song, show some cool clips, use the fancy ass lasers they bought on the ice. It has to be rock. Enough with this pop/techno garbage. It doesnt go with hockey.

More rock less crap please.

Basically everything MegaNuck said..

I can't even put into words how offsetting hearing that opening was after waiting 8 months for hockey.. I don't see what was wrong with the U2 opening just because a guy on CDC made a thread about it. It gives me the chills whenever the Canucks skate out it and always reminds me of the great experiences we've had with this team. Some crappy pop tune doesn't energize the crowd at all.. So disappointed we still have DJ Dave.

And Green Day was great as our goal song, I don't know why we always have to mess with a good thing.
