Agree 100% with you guys, especially with being at the mercy of the cameraman. The most frustrating thing about trying to watch guys on TV/webcast/whatever is how much time you waste just trying to figure out if your guy is on the ice or not.

On the other hand, instant replay is a bonus.
See, this suggests to me that "video scouting" would, among other things, involve video recording of the entire ice (potentially with multiple cameramen), rather than hoping the single cameraman is focusing on your guy. That way you get ALL the data available to a live guy and also get the benefit of detailed breakdowns via instant replay.

Cut down on travel costs, too. All you need to do is send (or locate) competent cameramen. Your hockey experts could stay at home.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
