I hate it. It is too close to the ice. You only see one half/side of the offensive zone.

I like to see the entire offensive zone. To see who is open, to anticipate where the pass might be going, to observe how the entire PK is spread out, etc.

Side angles, please.

I also hate them, seems like the other team always scores when it happens too.

Every time it goes to that angle, I am left wondering which genius came up with that idea.

Loathe. I get nervous, I don't know why. It just looks weird and I can't stand it.

Hate it. Can't see how the play is developing at all.

I like it. For me, every move is a little more exciting from that point of view. It's rare that they even use it.

I ****ing love that angle to be honest.

Maybe it has something to do with being a goalie myself so I love seeing how fast and accurate the puck is being moved from the goalie's perspective (well.. almost his perspective)

Love it, though I agree something higher up would be better. Most broadcasts have a camera from behind the net, but much farther up (usually the first replay they go to for a goal). I'd love to see that angle used during live action on a PP.

Agreed, as long as it is wide enough it is the best angle by far. You can see offense and D setting up, all the hitting and shots coming right at you into the glass. What's not to like?

Love it. Gives you a better idea of how fast the play is actually moving.

I yell at the TV whenever they show that angle. Seriously. I know I am alone in my basement, but I still do it.

I love it, I hate when they move to a different camera when it happens. My favorite camera for hockey to be honest.
