Cut down on travel costs, too. All you need to do is send (or locate) competent cameramen. Your hockey experts could stay at home.
That would certainly be an improvement on trying to scout from TV cameras or jumbotron feeds like those of us amateurs are forced to do. I don't exactly know the depths of just what "video scouting" entails but I can't imagine it's a bunch of guys watching the same feeds I'm seeing.
I've especially noticed the WHL feeds like to get in tight as hell to the puck carrier so you have no idea who anyone else on the ice is and where they are. Ah well...
