Maybe I'm misunderstanding the proposals here, but none of them seem to have to do with the view of the action. The graphics being suggested sound very un-intrusive, mostly appearing during stoppages and in the corners of the screen which generally just show the boards and crowd.
Now, if you want to talk about camera angles, I'm all for improvements on that front. The other night I watched a game from Nassau where the puck went off-screen every time it cleared the zone.
At the risk of being called elitist, I generally know what's going on on the ice.
If you can tell which players are coming onto the ice during off-screen line changes, you're a better fan than me.
Optional information streams are obviously a superior option, but they're still not close to implementation in most households. We will get there eventually, but in the meantime I'd much rather know which players on the ice than just see them as "Player 1, Player 2, Player 3, Player 4, and Stamkos".
