4.0 out of 5 stars Good release, but.... (3.5 stars) February 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
As my title indicates, I am thrilled that there are finally a set for the Washington Capitals on DVD. And certainly, I cannot argue with the choices of the games such as the 87 series win against the Philadelphia Flyers, the 98 series win against the Sabres, or even the more recent game in 2009 where Ovechkin and Crosby both notched hat tricks in Capital wins. I can also understand including the Penguins game from 96, seeing as they have traditionally been a rival of the Capitals.

However, there are a couple of things about the game selection that bother me. First, two of the most memorable games from growing up as a Capitals fan were the Easter Epic 4OT game against the New York Islanders and the 4 OT game in 1996 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. I understand that these probably would not be included because these sets typically do not feature losses, but both of these games were well-played, suspense-filled games against traditional rivals. Furthermore, even if they are only including wins, why would they not include the game 6 from 1994 where the Washington Capitals eliminated the Pittsburgh Penguins (especially considering how much trouble Washington had winning playoff series prior to that against the Penguins)?

This goes somewhat with my second complaint, which is that the set is tempered far more towards the Alex Ovechkin fans or newer Capitals fans. Do not get me wrong, I think he is one of the most exciting and hardest working players in the league and has managed to rekindle the interest of fans such as myself who had been less than inspired by our team's descent. However, there are 4 regular season games centered around Ovechkin or an Ovechkin led team. Why couldn't they have picked maybe 1 or 2 at most of the most significant of those games.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointing April 6, 2010
As a current Caps season ticket holder and long time fan who has been going to games for over 20 years I was very excited when I heard about this set, then absolutely dissapointed when I saw the games that were included. The first 3 games are great and should be included, but then you get 7 games from '05 to now. What the heck? This should be just entitled the best of Ovechkin. Contrary to what people may thing the Caps did have a team and fans before Ovie arrived. It would have been real nice to have seen some win from the early years in the late '70's. I know most of those weren't broadcast and the team was not very good, but as a Caps fan you want to see a bit of all periods of history. Then in the '80's the Caps started winning, let's see a game or two before '88!!! The '98 game advancing to the Cup is necessary, but why not another from that year? It's still the most successful year the Caps have ever had (until hopefully this year). Very dissapointing. Recommended for an Ovechkin fan, but for someone looking for a history of the Caps franchise from the beginning this totally dissapoints.

About time!
I hope they include the mammoth game that ran for 6 1/2 hours with the NY Islanders in the '86/'87 season on April 18th/19th (4 overtimes!). Also, maybe Game 7 with the Philadelphia Flyers in the '87/'88 season.

Edit: I just noticed that the Islanders set has the epic game. Not sure if it's... Read more
