    Agreed the jumbotron penalty clock is too damn small … get it fixed Pepsi Center!

    The Avs really did dumb down the jumbo scoreboard this season. To see the time remaining on a penalty you can no longer just do a quick glance up. Instead you have to turn to the side score display which I find too distracting when I am concentrating on the game. Not only that but they also removed the other statistical data that used to be there. And while I’m ranting they need return to Rock and Roll, Pt. 2 as the goal song. Anything else might as well be crickets chirping.

      Our seats are at the end so I didn’t know that the large screen still shows the penalty clock until we had some center ice seats for one of the games. They’ve completely taken the penalty clock of the smaller end view screens so you have to look at the tiny clocks on the ribbon boards if you have end seats. It makes no sense and I have no idea why they did this.

        … on the other hand, “Chase the Sun” is the greatest goal song in the NHL. I hope the Avs never change it. The “darts” version, which is the one the Avs use (the British darts spectators are really saying, “oy, oy, oy” not “hey, hey, hey” but I digress…) is the ring tone on my phone. Even though the NHL Rockies were the first pro sports franchise in the known universe to use RR Pt 2 and we have the birthright to use it that song is so cliched at this point that I would not be a fan of going back to it. If you really pine for it go to an Eagles game.

      Just putting it out there but the reason teams have largely stopped with RRP2 is because the royalties that go to Gary Glitter. Nobody wants to financially support a serial child sex offender so the sports world has decided it’s not worth it. I tend to agree. I love the current goal song personally and think they’ve found something catchy, interactive, and unique. Just my two cents about the goal song!

        I knew that the NFL actually ordered all their franchises to stop using it in 2014 for that reason and assumed that’s why the Avs stopped after 2014 also. I believe the Devils (the relocated Rockies who had kept it for all those years) stopped then also. I was pretty surprised to go up to a game in Loveland and hear it still being played.

        As an aside, toward the end of the Avs use of it I read an article reviewing all the NHL goal songs which laughed at the Avs ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ to using such a cliched and overexposed song. The author apparently had no idea that a Denver based NHL team was the very first major league (and I believe only the second of any) franchise to use it in any way and the Avs sort of had a right to start playing it again in McNichols when they moved in.

        In my opinion using that as an excuse for not playing it is over the top PC. If Gay Glitter is guilty of child abuse then the full weight of the law should be lowered on him but I do not see that listening to that song and having everyone raise a fist and shout HEY enjoying a goal has to do with it. At least with it we didn’t need arena staff holding up signs to get people to cheer. After this much time how much are the royalties if any? How many rock bands including those that play any song heard in arenas today did not take advantage of young groupies with alcohol, drugs and/or sex and yet it is perfectly OK to play their songs??? I guess that we will just have to continue with sound of crickets chirping after goals. But I still hear the proper song in my head.

    Not avalanche related but I’d love to hear y’all chime in on this. If marner keeps up this points pace you would have to think he would be due a contract in the 9-10 million range. You already have Tavares getting 11 million a year and nylander getting around 7. Auston matthews is probably due to get 11-12 million. That’s like 40 million for 4 players. What do you see the rest of the roster looking like going forward and do you believe it will have any affect on their success. Keep up the good work boys.

    I know their TOI is already huge but do you think the Avs in light of some of their PK struggles look to get MacK and Landy some PK work?
