You mentioned surveillance, ice hockey and lacrosse.  Those subjects are normally taken with a prime.  In surveillance, you want your subject to be a large as possible so rarely will you want to shoot at 200 rather than 400mm.   My experience in sports is a fixed telephoto.  So, my advice is 300mm with TC 1.4.
