Editorial Reviews

An Original Six club with a history reaching back to the birth of the National Hockey League, the Toronto Maple Leafs are one of hockey's flagship institutions. With a long line of legendary players, coaches and managers, Toronto has come to be known as hockey's unofficial capital city, backed by a fan base with an unquenchable passion for the game and their Leafs. Through the years, the Maple Leafs dazzled their fans with heroics like Bob Baun beating Detroit on a broken leg. There have been classic battles against the rival Montreal Canadiens, Lanny McDonald's unforgettable goal in 1978, and gritty, battle-scarred icons like Doug Gilmour, Wendel Clark and Mats Sundin. Now, for the first time, all of the Maple Leafs Greatest Players' finest moments and greatest games come together in a must-have box set for the most passionate hockey fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Great Leafs Games! August 2, 2009
Verified Purchase
As a long time Leafs fan, I have been excited about the upcoming release of these DVDs, but disappointed that more details haven't been given -- specifically, which ten games will be included. So I did a little research and found a more detailed description from Warner Brothers. Here are the ten games:

1. Leafs vs. Red Wings, 4/23/64... Bob Baun, playing on a broken ankle, beats the Red Wings in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

2. Leafs vs. Canadiens, 5/2/67... The Leafs clinch the '67 Stanley Cup.

3. Leafs vs. Islanders, 4/29/78... Lanny McDonald eliminates the Islanders with a Game 7 overtime goal in the '78 playoffs.

4. Leafs vs. Blues, 4/16/87... Ken Wregget blanks the Blues to advance in the '87 playoffs.

5. Leafs vs. Sharks, 5/14/94... Wendel Clark scores twice in Game 7 to send the Leafs to the Western Conference finals. (Note: Warner Brothers lists this as the 5th game, even though it is chronologically out of order.)

6. Leafs vs. Red Wings, 5/1/93... Nikolai Borschevsky's Game 7 overtime goal eliminates the Red Wings in the '93 playoffs.

7. Leafs vs. Blues, 5/3/93... Doug Gilmour's behind-the-net wraparound goal in double overtime beats the Blues in the '93 playoffs.

8. Leafs vs. Senators, 4/13/01... The Leafs beat Ottawa 1-0 on Mats Sundin's overtime goal. (Note: Warner Brothers lists this game as Leafs vs. Canucks, but the Leafs beat the Sens, not the Canucks, on 4/13/01.)

9. Leafs vs. Senators, 5/4/02... Curtis Joseph has 54 saves and Gary Roberts scores in triple overtime to beat the Sens in Game 2 of their 2002 playoff series.

10. Leafs vs. Senators, 5/12/02...

2.0 out of 5 stars bizarre choice of games May 7, 2011
First off, since the details are not here on amazon.com, here's what is in this box set without giving away too much for those who want to watch these games fresh (and below I'm not calling Division Finals and Conference Quarter-Finals anything other than what they should be logically called):
vs. Detroit (1964 Final, Game 6, Bob Baun playing on broken ankle)
vs. Montreal (1967 Final, Game 6, Red Kelly's last game in the NHL)
vs. NY Islanders (1978 Quarter-Final, Game 7, Lanny McDonald's big goal)
vs. St. Louis (1987 1st round, Game 6, Ken Wregget "big" 19-save performance)
vs. Detroit (1993 1st round, Game 7, Nikolai Borchevsky's only big goal)
vs. St. Louis (1993 Quarter-Final, Game 1, a creative Doug Gilmour goal)
vs. San Jose (1994 Quarter-Final, Game 7, Wendel Clark scores a pair)
vs. Ottawa (2001 1st round, Game 1, Mats Sundin scores a goal)
vs. Ottawa (2002 Quarter-Final, Game 2, Gary Roberts and lots of OT)
vs. Ottawa (2002 Quarter-Final, Game 6, memorable CuJo performance)

Word of warning: Although the beyond fantastic Joe Bowen is on here doing the intros to each game, do not watch them. He sometimes gives away the scores and details of the game before you've even started watching them.

The '60s games have Bill Hewitt doing the play-by-play with some Keith guy doing color on the Baun game and Brian MacFarlane on the '67 game.
The Lanny game has Dan Kelly and MacFarlane.
The rest have Bob "I'm expected to know non-Leaf players' names?" Cole and Harry "Whaler" Neale as we, outside of the Centre of the Universe, have all grown to whine about from the '80s to the '00s. (Has the CBC ever had a clue? Holy mackinaw, get Joe Bowen on national Leaf broadcasts!

5.0 out of 5 stars So awesome! April 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I bought this for a friend and we watched the 1967 game together. So awesome! As a Library Specialist, I'm really excited to see such an old game, watching history. I'm glad the NHL decided to release some archival stuff! We had so much fun comparing the 1967 game to today's game. It's soooo different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Games, but missing one... March 2, 2013
By Greg B.
I personally love high scoring shootouts, so I was disappointed that they didn't include the 1986 Leafs/Oilers game in which Toronto won 11-9. The Oilers were a scoring machine that year...Gretzky had 163 assists, let alone 215 points for the year. That's a game I would have loved to have.
