I agree! One of my latest obsessions has been collecting full original broadcasts of vintage sports on DVD: the A&E World Series sets, and several college bowl games and NCAA Championship games that are available from another label. I'm hopeful that both labels continue with more releases of 1970's/1980's material.
In addition to the three NHL sets, Warner is also releasing sets of the full NBA Finals for the 1989 Detroit Pistons, 1994 Houston Rockets, and !991 Chicago Bulls. All of these are definitely a step in the right direction, although my real hope (as aformentioned) is that Warner will go back a bit further and give us more stuff from the 70's/80's. There are a dozen or more Stanley Cup and NBA finals I would absolutely love to have from that era.
And I don't understand why the heck the NFL doesn't get in on this and release original broadcasts of the classic Super Bowl games on DVD. Those would undoubtedly be a huge seller.
