Having said that, I won this DVD on a bet with my dad over the outcome of the 2002 Western Conference Finals. I was in the process of moving the night of Game 7 and had no idea of the score until I was able to check the internet via my cellphone. When I saw 6-0 I couldn't believe it...eventually they tacked on the extra point and won 7-0. My dad thought I was bull$h!tting him when I called him with the score, and my 'Lanche-supporting friends could only take solace that as bad as that defeat was, Saudi Arabia's 8-0 loss to Germany in the World Cup the next day was far worse.
Having said all that, the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals were an anticlimax as has been the case over the last several years. One all-powerful team makes it, and a quality opponenet from the othe other conference simply isn't to be found. As this DVD is designed to chronicle the highlights of the season, it would have been better if more attention and screentime was given to the Conference Finals (the series which truly decided the Stanley Cup; no hockey fan could doubt that). I wouldn't have minded an extra feature on the 2002 Olympic ice hockey tournament either, as the Wings had so many players involved. I guess that would have been stepping on the IOC's turf, though.
Anyway, it's a decent enough tribute to a truly amazing star-studded team...the interviews with the players, the preseason moves to put together a living Hall Of Fame team on ice, all of this is well-documented.Read more ›
The extras were also lame. The stats are available anywhere on the internet and the Lidstrom feature was very short. The Hasek feature was just the NHL coolshots special about Czech players going home for the summer.
Hopefully in the future they will include much more features such as the closing ceremonies, photo gallery, more insider cameras at practices etc, and multiple camera angles.
I still like it though, I'm a Wings fan after all;-)

When I purchased this so many years ago it was great to own.
Shows the whole season and playoffs. A must have for Redwings and Yzerman fans.
...can appreciate this, but only if they are a true hocky fan. W may never see a team like this again - made up of at least 9 potential HOFers and the greatest coach of all time. Read morePublished on Jan. 6 2003
