"This has every cup game between the Penguins and the Red Wings from their classic 07/08 finals. Hopefully the rematch in 08-09 comes out too."
It is what it is!

"I am sorry that some people feel they got duped by this set not having the highlight video in it but that is nobody's fault but thier own. The description of this set was perfectly clear to understand and nowhere did it say anything about the highlight video. I pre-ordered this the day it went up on Amazon and I understood fully what I was getting because I actually took the time to properly read the description. I pre-ordered the highlight video at the same time I pre-orfered this set. If you take the time to properly read a description then you wont run into these problems. If you do have a question then email customer service or do some researching on the net. They actually had a page up on the Red Wings homw page that also explained what was going to be in this set so you could have gotten that info from multiple places. Again this is nobody's fault but thier own.
As for the set, Its everything I expected it to be and I am a huge fan of these types of sets. They should release these for all of the recent Red Wing Stanley Cup seasons. I would buy them without hesitation. My one complaint and ultimatly why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that they cut pretty much all of the commentary. I enjoy the pregame and postgame commentary. The pregame commentary sets up the game your about to watch and the postgame gives you a nice conclusion. By just jumping right into the game and skipping the commentary you basically cut out an essential aspect to the games. IMO those pre and post game commentaries are vital. It just doesnt feel right jumping right into the game with no setup whatsoever by the commentator's. With how cheap DVD's are to produce there is simply no excuse for cutting out such material. If I were the one in charge of making these sets I would include absolutely everything I could get my hands on. Personally I would love to see all 4 playoff series in a set like this but I can understand why they concentrated on just the finals. In the future it would be nice to have 2 different releases, one that is more expensive and has all 4 series and a cheaper one for those who just want the finals. I would easily pay 50-60 bucks for all 16 victories on DVD.
Beyond that one complaint its a great set. Having these games in DVD quality is awesome especially when the finals were as entertaining as they were. As I am sure most other Red Wings fans are aware, the Wings absolutely destroyed the competition in the finals during the 3 previous cup victories. I think they only lost 1 finals game out of the last 12 before coming up agains Pitt. I was really hoping for a quality series and not another sweep and we absolutely got a great series It was one of the best finals in a long time and this set gives us Winger fans the opprotunity to enjoy it for years and years to come.
Highly recommended even if it is a bit flawed."
