Better equipment = better decisions?
The National Hockey League will invest a total of $5 Millions in high definition cameras that will be installed over each net in every of the 30 NHL arenas. The league thinks that with the installation of those new cameras they will be able to make better decisions when they will go to the video replay.
Since the beginning of the 2007 playoffs, there were already three unconclusive video replays. When the video replay is unconclusive, they cannot speculate even if they think that the puck crossed the goal line. The league want to reduce the number of unconclusive video replays with the new equipment.
Let's do the math: 30 buildings, 60 nets. So there should be around 60 new cameras. $5 Millions divided into 60 cameras = $83 333 for each new camera. That's a lot of money for a single camera.
At this price, let's hope that the cameras will be VERY effective.
