Red Wings new goal horn draws mixed reviews

By now, you've heard the news that was welcomed with open arms by Detroit Red Wings fans everywhere. Little Caesars Arena installed a brand new goal horn ahead of Saturday night's opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning that was advertised as being the exact same model from Joe Louis Arena, and labeled as a "classic Hockeytown goal horn" in the press release. 

“There’s nothing like the sound and feeling of a goal horn reverberating through a raucous hockey arena and we’re excited to debut a new, classic Hockeytown goal horn on Opening Night at Little Caesars Arena,” Ryan Gustafson, Ilitch Sports + Entertainment's executive vice president & chief operating officer, said in the release. “This specific model of goal horn is a distinct part of our identity as Hockeytown, harkening back to Joe Louis Arena and paying homage to legendary performances of the past.”

And while it's true that the new horn was far louder than the recording of the horn from The Joe, there were more than a few fans who noticed that it really didn't sound anything like the famed former venue of the Red Wings. In fact, several users on social media pointed out that it sounded nearly identical to a certain division rival of Detroit's.

For those of you who were unable to watch the game, take a listen below to the new sound that blasts whenever the Red Wings light the lamp: 

Now, compare that to the horn at Amerant Bank Arena, formerly known as FLA Live Arena and BB&T Center that has been the home of the Florida Panthers since 1998: 

For many, this was the sound that was anticipated when the team press released promised the familiar sound that we all knew and loved from Joe Louis Arena: 

The good news for the Red Wings is that the new horn inside of Little Caesars Arena got quite the workout in its debut, as Detroit scored six goals to take their home opener over Tampa Bay. But what are your thoughts on how the new horn actually sounds compared to what was advertised?
