Yes, the video isn't HD quality, and yes, the audio fades a few times, but, c'mon guys, these games are thirty years old. Just remember, HD didn't exist in 1976 and neither did DVDs. I can't imagine anyone back then thinking that thirty years later, someone would want to have copies of these games. And to be honest, only the video quality in the U.S. game is below average. Everything else looks pretty good.
The chance to see Phil Esposito, Bobby Clarke, Bobby Hull, Denis Potvin, Bobby Orr, et al. competing on the same team is amazing. As for which games are or aren't included, yes it was disappointing not to see Canada vs Finland but I'm assuming the video wasn't very good or didn't exist anymore.
And as a Canadian, do I want to see Finland play Sweden, or the Czechs play the States? Not really.
Anyway, I have the 1972 Summit Series, now I finally have the Canada Cup 76. I can't wait until the 1984, 1987 and 1991 Canada Cups come out. And I would even consider the 1981 tournament as well.
If you love watching Canada in international play, buy this set. It's worth it.
I am very satisfied with this set and recommend it to anyone who is interested in international hockey or vintage hockey. Virtually every player on Team Canada '76 wound up in the Hall of Fame. Will Canada ever ice a team with as many superstars as this team?
But what a magnificent opportunity to see so many amazing players playing all at once - Bobby Hull, Bobby Orr, Guy Lafleur, Marcel Dionne - etc etc etc. Enough to give me goosebumps just talking about it...

Just a fantastic box-set for anybody wanting to visit the 70s again. The first international tournament of it's kind now that '72 and '74 had set the tone. Read morePublished on Oct. 24 2012 by old man
Even worse than the quality of the video (OK, I get it was 1976 but it's just average as far as '70s hockey pic quality on some of the games) is the skewed focus on the tournament... Read morePublished on April 11 2006 by Brian Maitland
