The cultural value is great, but that's for the event. The DVD in itself is completely raw: not work at all was done to restore the footage. The result is the digital transcript of a deteriorated copy. However, the material is excellent and abondant: interviews (great ones!), game presentations, and more. Overall, it's a great buy for that price.

Quite simply the best spectacle of modern sports. And, once again to the gentleman who figures we cheated: I understand you are swedish, and likely don't play the game with much intensity, but the bottom line is, that's hockey. Clark got the penalty he deserved, and that's the end of it. He broke a rule, and took the consequences.

This one is actually something as rare as a complete game set of the 8 games summit series from 1972... The games included are considered some of the best ever played featuring the great USSR and Canada. It's really obvious watching this DVD that the Soviet team actually was a bit better than the Canadien who had to cheat; they almost cut Charlamovs fot of to stop him, if the Canadien players would have played fair and by the rulebook they would have lost bigtime. Anyway its a good collection of great hockey.. The only downside is that the footage is very bad althrough entire DVD, and you might get tired watching 19 hours of hockey. If you only want the highlights of every game in great quality buy the Summit series DVD it is +++++++!

Ah, what memories! There will never be another series like it. And to the Customer from Calgary: Europeans play hockey with as much intensity as anyone -- it's just that Europeans play it with intensity of hockey players, whereas Canadians with intensity of street thugs. Hence, you keep getting Bertuzzis, McSorleys, Domis, Hunters, et al -- all fine Canadian hockey players who should be in jail.
