Ads superimposed on the glass? Glowing halo around the puck? Robot dancing around the screen? Yeah, I get the issue with that. But we're talking about actually giving people a better awareness of what's happening on the ice, not detracting from it.
Howsabout actually giving people a better VIEW of what's happening on the ice?

At the risk of being called elitist, I generally know what's going on on the ice. As I said, ATSC allows umpteen closed-caption streams. Use one of them for "value added information". And if you REALLY don't know what's happeing on the ice, write a letter to the broadcaster asking them to fire the play-by-play announcer. It's his job to keep you informed.
