For my money, it's the best hockey I've ever seen in my life. Both teams were loaded with Hall of Famers, and unlike the Olympics, there was tons of physicality in the series, since these were North American teams.
Just to give you an idea, Canada had the likes of Gretzky, Messier, Yzerman, Sakic, Lindros, Stevens, Brodeur, Niedermayer, Coffey and Shanahan. United States had the likes of Chelios, LaFontaine, Hull, Modano, Leetch, Hatcher, Richter, Tkachuk, Leclair, Housley and Amonte.
Basically, I don't think there's ever been a series, aside from maybe the 1972 Summit Series, that featured a more impressive array of Hall of Famers and legends, and it was something to watch all these guys on the ice at the same time. It's sadly not talked about as often as it should.
So what are you memories of this series?
