I find the constant panning on the behind the net angle annoying. It might be good if the puck stays on one side of the ice, but multiple cross-ice passes get annoying as the camera goes back and forth.

Also, when the puck is on the half boards, it's hard to see what's happening off of the far post. If they were using that angle for Tanguay's back door powerplay goal against the Ducks, the puck would have been in before the camera could pan over. That's what I've found when seeing this angle on TSN.

As said before, the angle is good for replays, but I wouldn't like the play to be broadcast with it. I can't stand it when I can't see all of the players in the zone in one shot. You can't see what they're setting up, and all of the off-puck positioning battles are lost.
