Format: DVD
With 24 Stanley Cups and countless memorable games in their hundred year history, selecting ten 'greatest games' is a difficult task indeed!. However, given the requirement of a decent video source, this DVD set was restricted to materials mostly drawn from the 1970's and up. This is a real shame, since so much of the legend and lore surrounding the Habs was forged in earlier decades. I personally am aware of at least a few complete Montreal games from the 1950's and 1960's that have been broadcast on classic sports TV stations, so only selecting the single 1960 game as a representation is somewhat disappointing. As well, for those who are afficianados of the team, the omission of the 1971 semi-final comeback against the Boston Bruins or the Cup winning seventh game that same season seems a bit perplexing. The 1965 seventh game against Chicago, 1966 overtime Cup winning game against Detroit, 1973 Cup winning game, 1976 taking the championship from Philly were some other candidates that come immediately to mind.

However, acknowledging such restrictions, the package that was put together is a very solid and worthwhile product. Mostly, a very good cross section of important games and milestones from the mid nineteen seventies to the present.

This is my subjective opinion about each game in this package.I'm only going by memory, so I apologize for any inaccuracies.

1) the 1960 Cup Final deciding game between Leafs and Canadiens. You really can't get a better historical document to appreciate the accomplishment of this majestic dynasty in it's nineteen fifties incarnation. This was the fifth of the five successive Cup wins of Toe Blake's team - and the very last game ever played by icon Rocket Richard.

This rating is simply for the games list. I'm not a Canadiens fan (Go Red Wings) but I will definately get this set once released.
This list was taken from CBC's on-line store:
1. 2/19/08 vs. Rangers (Habs come back from 5-0 down)
2. 11/23/03 vs. Oilers (Heritage game--don't know why it's here, it was already released on another DVD. Would rather have seen the McSorley illegal stick game)
3. 3/11/96 vs. Stars (Last game at the Forum)
4. 6/9/93 vs. Kings (Habs win 24th, and to date, last Stanley Cup)
5. 5/24/86 vs. Flames (Rookie Pat Roy takes team on his back to win 22nd Cup)
6. 4/20/84 vs. Nordiques (Adams Division Final, Game 6)
7. 5/10/79 vs. Bruins (Too many men on the ice. Semi-final Game 7)
8. 5/14/77 vs. Bruins (Habs win 2nd of Four Cups in a row)
9. 12/31/75 vs. Red Army (Tretiek puts on a show vs Habs)
10. 4/14/60 vs. Maple Leafs (Leafs get shut out as Habs win another Cup)

If you love hockey and history, this is a must DVD for you! to see Rocket Richard's last game in it's entirety is great ; but to see the last game at the old Montreal Forum, and the unbelieveable ceremony after the game, that will bring tears to your eyes ! I'm not even a fan of the Montreal Canadians, but I do appreciate what they've meant to the game of hockey down through the years ..... without a doubt, they are the Yankees of their sport !
