It also gives a glimpse in how the game has evolved over the decades.

I love this set and it might not be the greatest games but Flyers fans choose them, so they must know something.
A. Pierre
He was a great player whom we in Canada didn't see enough of when he was in his prime.

I'll give this five stars for the general concept, and I'm certainly happy to see these games again. But I disagree with some of the game selections.

First, only four of the ten games are home games (and only three at the old Spectrum). There was a special magic of Spectrum games.

Second and related...there were other games that really could have been added instead:

- Game 6 of the Conference finals against Quebec, in May of 1985, when Dave Poulin scored a shorthanded goal while the Flyers were two men short. The Spectrum EXPLODED when Poulin beat Mario Gosselin high to the glove side. Flyers won this game 3-0 to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals

- Game 5 of the Conference finals against Boston, in May of 1976, when Reggie Leach scored 5 goals at the Spectrum.

There are a few others I could mention, but those are the two biggest, and certainly could have been chosen over some of the more recent road games. I see there's a new DVD coming out in April on the history of the Flyers - hopefully it will cover some of these classic moments.

I am a young Flyers fan, so getting to see some of the classic games in their entirety is great. It also gives a glimpse in how the game has evolved over the decades.

This is a great collector's item for any die hard Flyers fan. To have the complete games of such unforgettable moments in Flyers' history (the Cup wins, the 1987 Game 7 against Wayne Gretzky's Oilers) is priceless. But the whole package will seem hugely biased to any true Flyers' fan. Missing are any games representing the years from 1988 through 1999: namely the Lindros Era. I don't know if Flyers' management was so anti-Lindros that they left the 90s out altogether, but included as two of the ten greatest Flyers' games ever are two games from their 2004 Conference Final run. ?! Really? That's more exciting than their 1997 Cup run with Lidnros? Or any game where the Legion of Doom dominated? Their return to the playoffs in Lindros' MVP season of 1995? The last three games in the set are only passingly interesting because you know the players all left and never made it to the Finals. It's a shame we don't have a DVD to commemorate those amazing Lindros Era teams in this set.

This box set was released to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Flyers franchise. Collecting together the ten greatest games in franchise history, these are complete game broadcasts. The picture is grainy on some of the older games, but overall the set is first rate. This is a must own for any Flyers fan and with the way they are playing this year, it's nice to remember some of the glory days.

I'm not a die-hard flyers fan but I'm buying this anyway for the Soviet Red Army game. It was a fantastic thing to watch.

I am not a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers. I have never been a Flyers fan, and I don't expect that I ever will. As a child in the mid 70s, I recall ripping up all my Philadelphia Flyer hockey cards on the night the Flyers beat my Canadiens thus ending their long undefeated streak. As a teenager in 1980 and an Oliers fan, I recall how the Flyers killed the dream of an expansion team going to the next round of the playoffs. With all this negativity I have expressed about the Flyers, I should be the last person who would want to buy a DVD that toasts their glory. What gives?

Here's the story. It is my contention that there are only three long-standing NHL teams that maintain strong fan support in good times and bad times. They are the Canadiens, Leafs, and Flyers. No, the Wings, Bruins, Rangers, and Hawks have all suffered stretches in my lifetime where a cannon could be fired in their home rink without endangering any spectators. Simply put, Flyer fans love their team with unconditional love. I repect them for that and thus have an admiration for a hockey team in the US that garners such love from its faithful fans.

Second, half of the games on this DVD are from the 1970s. At that time I was a kid learning about the game, so I did not fully appreciate those games when I saw them when they were originally played.

Third, in 2007, I watched the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the US for the first time since it was played. Along with the Esposito brothers and Whitey Stapleton, Bobby Clarke was game in and game out one of Canada's best players. My appreciation for him grew immeasurably after watching him in this series. Before that, I thought he was a dirty little rat bag of a player but who was also a rather capble GM.
