    I know that you guys missed it due to the leafs game, so it makes it better that I did record it! I took this video from my perspective in the champions club.
    (Htc one if anyone's wondering)




    (I'm new on HF, I usually use CDC b/c I like the site layout more.)

    Fixed the video. Might merge this thread elsewhere.

    edit: No it can stay. Old thread is old.

    2 minutes too long and it reminds me of the Senator standing at center ice in Ottawa.

    Just tacky overall.

    All I want is simplicity and Where the Streets Have No Name and I am more than happy.

    EDIT: And whatever song they're using... I cringe at every "WE ARE!!!!"

    Ugh. So bad.

    I honestly liked it! It was cool in the stadium. The voice over wasn't as bad as others think it was. Usually the intros take this long, etc. I've been to over 80 canucks games in recent years, and the lights usually start to dim 5-6 minutes before the anthem. At last night's game, it was just over 4 minutes before.

    Also, when I posted this on CDC, I said the same thing. It was a lot cooler in person than how it looked in the video!

    How can people justify comparing this to the gladiator of the sens? It's really not even close. Or saying that it was too long when they skipped all the individual player and coach introductions?

    It was short and sweet and showcased the new stanchions. Not bad.

    I really don't like the "We Are All Canucks" slogan. I hate it. It started with that cheesy '7th Man Ceremony' and hasn't improved much since then. The whole thing feels a little too patronizing.

    It'd be cool if we could fill the stadium with seahawks fans for one day. Every time the opposing team was on offense or on a pp, we'd just make noise lol.

    Didn't rock my world, but it was nice seeing what I missed on CBC thanks to the stupid leafs game. Thanks to the OP.

    I felt uncomfortable and kind of embarrassed just watching that in my own house.

    Was that just for the home opener, or are they doing that before every game?

    Same thing for me RobertKron. I can't believe how embarassed I felt watching this, it almost seems like satire of some sort, it's just so cheesy and awkward. The dim light, the Blacksmith smelting...something.

    I've also never liked the 'we are all canucks' slogan (Stanchion lights seem cool though)

    The blacksmith stuff is pushing it on the cheese factor but it's not that bad. I don't mind the song and think the song would work great for a more simplified breakdown/intro. It was fine for the season opening but for future, just crank the track, light up the celebration lights and shoot off some fireworks

  15. Absolutely BRUTAL. The most embarrassing team intro I have ever seen.

    I can't believe they actually released this. Let's pray that they change it to something actually relevant to hockey. Not some "sticks and stones" parody. Ugh...

    The music was good....creating some sort of a swagger feel.
    Voiceover and the poem was just :facepalm: Let's just say it would have been pretty awesome without the voiceover.

    Well if we win the cup we'll all be singing that song with our grandkids like the "Roar Lions Roar" tune which is equally horrible objectively.

    the music was pretty bad, oh well.

    Don't care about it if we win.

    They should just come out to this instead. They know they want to.

    I find it really embarassing as well, hopefully it's just a one time thing. Don't think I could stomach it in person.
