New 2009-10 Capitals Introduction Video

Anyone else kind of disappointed at the new pre-game introduction video being played at the Verizon Center for the first 2 games?

I have to admit that I was pretty sick of the "rock band" video from last year by the time the season ended (OK, I was sick of it by November), but I also think most of us were pretty fond of the Foo Fighter's "Pretender" opening video from the previous season, so many of us were kinda curious what they were going to for this season.

 

The heartbeat EKG and flames don't bother me at all, I can dig that I suppose, but I thought the lack of any kind of soundtrack was a bit of a let down.  I really like some upbeat, "let's get fired up!" tunes to start the hockey game and get everyone on their feet as Wes announces the lineups, and I didn't get that at all -- this years fanfare just isn't as hyped as we've come to expect the past couple of seasons.

Also, "Unleash the Red"?!?  Seems kinda lazy to me, it's just a combination of 2 previously popular battle cries this team has used.

I don't know, it appears quite a bit of production went into the video, and I'm not saying it should be scrapped, but it could definitely be improved upon...in my opinion.  What do you think?

H/T to "Your Nation's Capital" for providing a video link.

Update:  And here's the video on the Caps' website.
