One of the best Stanley Cup moments in NHL history

"Mark Messier swore he would give everything he had to bring the Stanley Cup back to New York. In 1994, Messier captained the historic Stanley Cup winning New York Rangers team after guaranteeing the team's Game 7 victory of the Eastern Conference Finals against the New Jersey Devils, and facing off against the Vancouver Canucks in the Cup Finals that went all seven games. The team led by Messier and coached by Mike Keenan, included future hall of famers and role players including Brian Leetch, Adam Graves, Mike Richter, Alexi Kovalev, Sergei Zubov, Kevin Lowe, Alexander Karpovtsev, and Jeff Beukeboom; all of whom played extremely important roles in the team's victory. This DVD collection features all the games from the Eastern Conference Finals and the Cup Finals; and every magic moment in between: Stephane Matteau's game winning goal against the Devils, Richter stoning Canucks sniper Pavel Bure in a penalty shot, and Messier hoisting up the Cup with a fan holding a sign saying "Now I Can Die in Peace". It's indeed one of the greatest moments in NHL history, and for Rangers fans, well, you already know that this is a must own."
Not completely unedited and uncut....

"Clearly 5 stars for the overall quality and packaging of this set (even includes Mark Messier Night as a bonus.) However, I take away a star for the games not being completely uncut (e.g., the end of Game 6 vs. Devils - the skirmish between Anderson & Nichols is edited out.) A relatively minor point perhaps since no game time is lost, but this is still annoying and totally unnecessary. Regardless, a nice and overdue DVD addition to any hockey fan's library--especially Rangers fans! Also, die-hard Ranger fans beware: some games are taken from the ESPN feeds, so no Sam & J.D. Although it is interesting to see and hear these games via a different lens and commentary, I was a bit disappointed in this production choice for some of these games."

"First of all, I'm a Rangers fun. I was looking forward to Messier's 2 disc "collectors" version promoted since last year, which was released this year as a 1 disc rehash. What a disappointment. Then this Rangers 1994 15 disc set. As other reviewers mentioned, this is edited game coverage of Conference finals against NJ, and Stanley Cup finals against VAN. I take one star away because of this cuts. Once I started to watch the set, I noticed the video quality of several segments are poor in Game 5 and 7 against NJ. I take another star away. Then the Game 2 against VAN, what terrible footages in 3rd period! Momentary black outs. Worst one lasting about one second. I can't believe they release this kind of poor footages for hefty price.
As a die hard Ranger fan, I want NHL production or WB to replace those defective footages and send to us without charge."
It Is What It Is...A Piece Of History!!

"Looking at all of the reviews for this set its clear to see that New Jersey Devil Fans and New York Ranger fans obviously dont like each other very much and that is fine as rivalry's are what give sports the drama that makes an ordinary game not so ordinary.
With that being said, any New Jersey Devil fan coming on here making fun of this set is an absolute moron. Making comments like sure watch this as you have nothing else to watch just reaks of jealously. Maybe when or if you have a 15 DVD set commemorating one of your seasons you wont feel so obligated to bash other teams. I am not even a big Ranger fan as I live in Detroit and you can only guess which team I root for. However I remember this series as I watched every game and I not only remember what an amazing run it was for New York I can also see the historical significance of the 1994 series. Does it deserve to have a 15 DVD set to commemorate it, Absolutly. Do other seasons besides 1994? Absolutly and hopefully this is just the beginning of these sets as I can pick 4 or 5 years of the top of my head that would deserve sets like these. 90-91 Penguins, 91-92 Penguins, 92-93 Candians, 86-87 Oilers, 00-01 Avalanch and lets not forget the one that needs it the most 96-97 Red Wings - First Cup Win in 42 Years :-)
So let rivalry's be rivalry's but to bash this DVD set only shows your ignorance to NHL history and to the sport itself. 94 was an amazing season of hockey period regardless of which team you root for and the Rangers run to the cup was definitly one for the books and deserves a set like this. So congrats to all of you Ranger fans, this is by far one of the best commemorative sets that you can buy for any sport. I plan on purchasing this for myself if I can find a good deal on it, 85 bucks is a little pricey for me at the moment but for 15 DVD's is definitly a good price.
So to sum this up, great set, great team and great idea for future sets. Hopefully w see more soon!!
Should have been fantastic

"This week, while being home from work, I was able to view the entire 7 game series against the Devils. I haven't seen the final series yet. I enjoyed the entire series although I was a bit disappointed in a number of things regarding this DVD set. Unfortunately for Rangers fans, they use ESPN broadcasts for all but 1 game. The other game they use a Canadian Cable channel broadcast. I'm pretty sure these games were broadcast on the Rangers regular MSG network and that is what should be on these disks. Sam Rosen and John Davidson far surpass the announcer combinations on these disks. I also would have loved to hear the different calls of the Matteau goal at the end of Game 6, especially the famous Howie Rose radio call (Matteau!! Matteau!! Matteau!). There were definite technical difficulties with blurry footage for during some of the games which was very annoying. Plus, I wish they could have included some interviews of former players with their remembrances of each game as well as some pregame and postgame thoughts and interviews. Those would have been a fantastic addition to this series. Those things hold down the number of stars I give to this collection. Otherwise, it was a terrific way to relive the Rangers - Devils series."
