Wow. The San Jose Sharks, soon to meet the Colorado Avs in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, are really high tech.
They use TiVo-esque digital recorders on the bench to crunch video on the fly. They even have a monitor for the players to watch on the bench. Plus, they can call up video of opposing teams to see their tendencies. Think of being able to see that on a penalty shot.
Apparently coach Ron Wilson started using this kind of technology with the Capitals.
All in all, I think hockey moves way too quickly for this to be horribly effective. But it’s still pretty neat.
