Having a quality ice surface is such a big deal and I'd been wishing for years that the Sabres would invest in improving it.
I think the laser beam thing is a BS marketing thing by Zamboni.

Now all the money they put into improved de-humidification.......

To be fair, out of hand it does seem like the kind of hyper-precision that you find in gold HDMI cables. Not that I'm complaining.

The laser system automatically adjusts the shaving blade to the minimum cutting depth needed to get a flat surface. It's much more precise than eyeballing a 200'x85' surface and trying to estimate the correct blade depth.

I've no doubt that it's actually useful, I just empathize with Jim Bob's out of hand reaction.
