For the first time in NHL history the Stanley Cup Champions are not going to get a Championship DVD, VHS, or Beta! Yes, it’s 2013 and it’s an Apple kind of world so if you want to re-live the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup season it costs you $6.99 from your I-tunes store. If you’re a Hawks fan it’s well worth the small investment. Here are some quick thoughts after just watching the video.
-The regular season is not mentioned at all after the streak comes to an end and the word President’s trophy is only heard once at the beginning of Game #1 of the Minnesota series.
-Having Pat Foley narrate is perfect even though none of his game calls are heard throughout the highlights.
-The first shot on goal in the playoffs by Cal Clutterbuck still is annoying, but at least it wasn’t a bad omen.
-Andrew Shaw looks like a 70’s detective that just lost a fight with his mustache and shiner which is pretty great.
-I wasn’t expecting to hear Blackhawks radio announcer John Wiedeman defend Stephen Walkom no goal decision on the Niklas Hjalmarsson goal in Game #7 of the Detroit series. He described Walkom’s decision as gutsy.
-Brent Seabrook is Mr. Overtime
-I was surprised that they didn’t spend more time on the 17 seconds in Game #6.
-Its rated PG no F-Bombs by Andrew Shaw during the playoffs or Corey Crawford from the podium slipped by the editors.
Overall, as stated earlier it’s over an hour of behind the scenes, interviews and players mic’d up for the playoffs which for any Blackhawks fan waiting for the 2013-2014 season to begin is great footage to watch even if you don’t get the Stanley Cup DVD.
