OT: 1994 NY Rangers 15 Set DVD "Original Six" Series

I was wondering if anyone had this DVD set?

If so, I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. On one site where the product is reviewed, it says the original game broadcasts are "ESPN or MSG," which I assumed means you could select which one you wanted, which I thought was cool.

But then another review I saw said that there is only one audio track, but that it varies from game-to-game which broadcast they use. Ie, ESPN is used for most of the Conference Finals and Game 2 of the SCF, but then MSG is used for most of the Finals themselves.

I was specifically looking, and have been for some time, for the Game 7 ESPN feed of this game so when I heard that this DVD set offered that feed, I was excited, but I think I might be mistaken. Can someone clear this up for me, and if possible point me to where I might be able to obtain a DVD of that game 7 with the ESPN feed?

Thanks in advance.

I know for a fact that Game 7 of the Cup final is the MSG broadcast, and possibly the entire series. The series against the Devils is ESPN.

Well, according to the one review, it says MSG is used for most of the finals. If someone can confirm/deny this for sure, or whether you can choose a feed as the other review implies, I'd be grateful.

Thanks for the response though.

Don't ask why I want the ESPN feed... I'm just picky. That's where I saw it as a kid.

Yeah, I was thinking that, but to rent 15 DVDs would cost me more than a few bucks and you can get it on Ebay for $50 flat, pretty much. Even if I can save money on that price by renting, I'd have to buy the DVDs too, and by time it's all said and done it'd probably be close to the same $50. And if I'm only saving a few bucks, I'd just rather the box set.

I'd recommend getting it used, actually, because it's a nice set to actually own, IMO. I got it very cheap used.

Thanks, guess you can't get the ESPN feed for Game 7 of the Finals then.

I'll have to keep looking elsewhere... I still may get this set though.

It's been awhile since I watched it. If I recall correctly, all of the ECF was ESPN (which makes game 7 almost unwatchable, thanks a lot Thorne) with the exception of one of the games which was CBC.

I know for sure that game 7 of the Cup Finals is MSG; I'm pretty sure the rest are ESPN.

I have the set. Just to clear things up, all the games against NJ in the Conference finals are ESPN feeds except game 5 which is a CBC feed. In the finals, all the games are MSG feeds except for game 2, which is an ESPN feed.

I doubt you would be able to find an official DVD for sale with the ESPN feed for Game 7 of the finals. In order to get it, someone would have had to record it themselves and transfer it onto a DVD personally. Unfortunately, I cant help you there.

I'm almost positive I have the ESPN one on VHS too, since I was living in California at the time.

a MUST-SEE for all Rangers fans.

Sometimes memory makes certain events seem greater as more time passes.
If I had any doubts about my memories of the 1994 Rangers, this DVD series made me certain: THEY REALLY WERE THAT GOOD, and THE GAMES REALLY WERE THAT EXCITING.

I agree 100%, sometimes you go back and see an older movie you remember being really good and it is awful but those playoffs are still awesome. Seeing Messier as a physical force is so different then the player who returned to the Rangers after his time in Vancouver. Alexei Kovalev never played better at any time as a Ranger. And the player that was most dominating was Brian Leetch, with no disrespect to this years Conn Smythe Trophy winner Scott Niedermayer, if you want to watch an elite playoff performance by a defencemen watch the 1994 playoffs.

Game 6 against the Devs is still a classic. On the ESPN broadcast you can listen to the announcers as they see, evaluate, and predict the Rangers taking hold of the game/
