I had Avatar with me but opted not to use it for either TV as it just has too much CG to be a valid PQ yardstick IMO.
Thanks GK! I sold off my Sweeney Todd disc but do have Jeff Beck's tribute to Les Paul. The Dark Knight's IMAX scenes are gorgeous on the Elite, if only the rest of the film retained that type of resolution I would be drooling like an infant the entire run time.

Very nice! I wish my living room was large enough to accommodate such a wide TV cabinet/stand. The white is very chic and my lady would've loved to have that in place of my existing audio rack. The Tritons are excellent speakers, especially for the price, when I auditioned them at CES last year. Sandy was so generous in letting me listen to my own CDs for an extended period of time. The tweeters are brilliant, unmatched to any other tower I have listened to within the $5K and under speakers.
We almost bought that same floor lamp as well! However we began to notice that too many of our friends started to buy a similar design and being we prefer to be a bit more unique, decided on something else. We still think it's an elegant piece.

Be warned that source content can also play a huge factor, it can easily fool you into thinking you have an artifact when you don't. I've recently experienced this issue with a DVR Recording of mine, good luck with your search.
I'm not a huge hockey fan (basketball is my sport) but will see what I can find on ESPN. I usually prefer to find a Blu-ray only because as you mentioned, the source content or even a sudden increase in bandwidth may degrade the quality. Ignorance maybe bliss at times, but I do enjoy my this hobby and it would be a travesty if I didn't make a mild attempt at understanding all the subtle attributes of each panel that I buy. It's also very possible that DSE just doesn't bother me. Two of my good friends prefer to have the SOE look, or possible they are just used to it now, while I just can't stand it. One even has BD rips but there is an occasional judder effect that I find to be unbearable but all my friends just look at me like I'm crazy when I bring it up.
