You really have to love the DVD format. It has shown us the real meaning of special editions when talking about movies, has given us our favorite TV shows in complete seasons and now it has gone a step further and given us sports fans something very special. The best part about this set of DVD's are not the highlights and the behind the scenes interviews but the 5 full games that are included. These 5 games are without a doubt the 5 best games in recent Red Wing history. The fans who voted for these 5 games knew what they were talking about. I myself had these games taped onto VHS and have wathced them many times but the quality was pretty pathetic. Having these games on DVD is just about the greatest thing a Red Wing fan could ask for. I still get goosebumps when I watch these games and again this is a set that any Red Wing Fan must have.

In total you get 5 full games (the best 5 in recent history) + tons of extras including interviews & behind the scenes footage. I would have easily paid $100.00 for this set (20.00 per game) and the price is only around $40.00 which really is an amazing price for what you get. If your a Red Wing fan and your into DVD's then this one is a no brainer. Lets hope this trend continues as I would like to get a set like this for the Detroit Pistons as well. Anyways, enjoy this set - I know I will.

This DVD contains 16 hours of highlights (to include 5 full-length games) from one of the premier franchises in the history of sports: The Detroit Red Wings.

The first disc begins with the story of the return of Lord's Stanley's Cup to its rightful place after over a 4 decade absence. The narrator tells the story of how the team had to literally have an "extreme makeover;" starting with the acquisition of forward Brendon Shannahan, in order to even think about toppling their mortal rivals the Colorado Avalanche.

Disc one sets the tone for the rest of the collection as you see the Red Wings quickly evolve into a physical, take-no-prisoners team with the legendary Steve Yzerman as their captain. The build-up toward their quest for their first Cup in 42 years will keep you on the edge of your seat. Action footage is punctuated with interviews w/players and Hall-of-Fame Coach Scotty Bowman in a way that makes you want to watch all 16 hours in one sitting. My 13 year-old son and I started watching at 10:00 one evening. It was very difficult to limit ourselves to just this one disc, and to finish the set in the coming days. The highlight selection and the editing at first rate.

This 4-disc set is destined to be a collectors item. It is my sincere hope that the powers-that-be at the NHL produce a set for all of the "Original 6."

Disc 1, side A: Hockeytown (1996 - 1997); Side B: Return to Hockeytown (1997 - 1998)
Disc 2, Side A: Hockeytown 3 (2001 - 2002); Side B: "Moments of Magic" (1997)
Disc 3, Side A: 5.16.96: Game 7 conf. semi-finals vs. Blues (OT)
Disc 3, Side B: 6.8.02: Finals Game 3 vs. Hurricanes (2-1, Wings)
Disc 4, Side A: 5.31.02: Game 7 Conf. Finals Avalanche at Wings (7-0, Wings)
Disc 4, also Side A: 6.7.97: Finals Game 4 vs. Flyers (2-1, Wings)
Disc 4, Side B: 3.26.97: Avalanche at Wings (6-5 in OT, Wings)

This is an incredible set. How about that 3.26.97 game that ended 6-5? This game is a brawl-fest; less than a minute into OT Shanahan passes to McCarty for a 6-5 win. This is one of the classic games in Wings history, certainly recent history, because it proved that Detroit could not only beat Colorado, but really overpower them. The game really powered them after underachieving through the middle '90s.

The Flyers game is a must; McCarty's highlight reel goal on Hextall with 6:58 to go in the 2nd is one to rewind and watch a few times. Amazing. This game completed a 4-game sweep and a return of the Cup to Detroit.

5.31.02: Pat Roy is pulled short of halfway through the 2nd as the Red Wings pile up a 6-0 lead and cruise to a 7-0 final. A laugher.

The documentaries are good, although not award-winning material; basically, the highlight reels from '97, '98, and '02. The "Moments of Magic" documentary is about an hour and is a brief history of the Wings from 1930s - 1950s, and then considerable time is spent discussing the Ilitch purchase, the drafting of Yzerman, and the '97 championship team. There is a brief blurb about the Octopus as well. Very touching to see Yzerman hand the Cup to a wheelchair bound Konstantinov. Wow.

so i started out looking for the 97 cup highlights on dvd because I only have them on vhs, and ended up finding this- it looked amazing at first sight, and i bought it like 5 mins after i saw it, and I just got it in the mail 2 days ago and it's even better than I ever would have guessed!
It has the exact 97, 98, and 02 cup highlight videos, memorable moments of red wing history, and 5 of the fan voted on favorite games in recent history including the 7-0 win over colorado to win the western conference, and the epic detroit vs colorado fight from 97! it's absolutely amazing- any red wing fan should definitely have this set

A great program for 4 Days (1/7/05-1/10/05) & I'm a big full-throttle hockey fan (Red Wings, Flyers & the Bruins), this 4-Double Sided Disc set with over 16 hours of bouns material: 4 Feature-Length Programs with In-Depth Interviews: Hockeytown -'97 Stanley Cup Champions, Return of Hockeytown - '98 Stanley Cup Champions, Red Alert: Hockeytown 3 - '02 Stanley Cup Champions & Moments of Magic: A Celebration of Hockeytown,

5 Feature-Length Original TV Programs has chosen by the Fans: Regular Season 3/27/97 & 5/31/02 Game 7 Western Conference Finals vs. Avalanche, 5/16/96 Game 7 Western Conference Semifinals vs. Blues, 6/7/97 Game 4 Stanley Cup Finals vs. Flyers & 6/8/02 Game 3 Stanley Cup Finals vs. Hurricanes, Standard Version of the Program & also availiable with Dolby Digital 5.1 so you can hear very loud at your own living room! In a long dark seasons how the Red Wings never the cup in 42 Years ('55-'97), but things change by the team & the city of Detroit as they get the hands of the Stanley Cup by sweeping the Flyers in '97 for the first time. A year later they did it again by sweeping the Captitals for the second straight in a row. 4 years later, 5 Games of the Stanley Cup Finals vs. Hurricanes. In game 3 this will be a longest game ever in Playoff history rank third place all-time over 6 straight hours (about after 8:15pm to after 1:15am), until the Morning when Igor "The Professor" Larionov (#8) gets the game winner in Triple Overtime (6th Period), and I watched it on DVD for over 3 Hours without the advertisements. On the '97 Original Season vs. Avalanche just before the playoffs; a lot of big fight & unbelivable chaos with close to 3 hours on cable TV (Side B - Disc 4), but with the DVD without the advertisements close to 145 Minutes.
