5 Stars...but some big games missing
Kevin S. Goff | Pennsylvania, USA | 02/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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.

For The Flyers Fanatic
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 12/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Awesome
T. Harper | Virginia, USA | 08/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
