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

You would NEED multiple cameramen, especially if scouting a goalie, or both a defenseman and forward, because they'll be on different places on the ice.

So that means, around three cameramen a game (plus paying scouts at home), as opposed to one-two scouts.
