5.0 out of 5 stars Mulroney's in the stands --- great set!!, Nov. 15 2005
OK, I'll admit it. The fact that you can see Mulroney in the stands is interseting but not the main feature of this set (this isn't a joke, I'll tell you where to find him at the end of the review --- historically interesting, and I wonder if even the former PM knows he was on TV. If you love hockey, you need this set. For one thing, even disregarding the drama and history of the series, I can't think of one other set of videos or dvds showing an entire series or even an entire game from that era ---- if you want to relive an era, clips of hilites aren't enough , you need the whole game. Can anybody think of ONE game, just ONE, which exists complete from the 1972-73 season? There aren't any besides this set. SO if you are a purist and you want to relive the past, you NEED this set. OF course, the fact that it's the first exposure of two different systems of hockey is remarkable. The way the Soviets literally skated circles around Canada in the first game is remarkable. It's especially remarkable if you first watch the 1987 Canada Cup DVDs (also incredible) and realize that by 1987 both the SOviets and the Canadians were playing ... like the SOviets of 1972. ANyway, buy the set, it's unreal and a real treat.
By the way, about Mulroney ---- before the FIRST game, when Dryden was announced as the goalie, the camera then goes to the cheering crowd. There is NO DOUBT, you definitely see Brian Mulroney in the crowd dead center in your picture, as clear as day.
