In my experience, gaming lag is really overrated for things that aren't hyper-sensitive in terms of timing. Your experience may vary, but I'd think it wouldn't much matter for Madden or FIFA or somesuch.
I don't watch hockey, but find the appearance of it adequate on my VT50. I suspect, however, that hockey would be most satisfying on an F8500 and by a pretty good margin. The extra brightness is going to just be nice on something that white.
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
