5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars...but some big games missing 23 Feb 2007
By Kevin S. Goff - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 27 Aug 2007
By T. Harper - Published on Amazon.com
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to have, but incomplete 20 Jan 2012
By Alan E. Zoll - Published on Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars For The Flyers Fanatic 13 Dec 2006
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
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.
