complete waste of time and #99 deserves better

As other reviewers have stated there is way too much of the talking heads segments and not enough hilites.
But even with the so-called five greatest games on here you're better off buying the Edmonton Oilers 10 Greatest Games DVD box set as the two of the decent Gretzky games (the '81 50G in 39GP vs. Phil and '84 F vs. NYI Game 5) are on that as well as seven others most of which are in the Gretzky era. Plus the choice of games on this DVD are more the "significant" nature rather than actual "great" games. The Oilers DVD is unlike that at all. All the games on there are great and the choices are very solid.
The NHL needs to take a page out of NFL Films and learn how to do documentaries on players and teams.
