SX50 for sports, anyone?

In a recent post, fast action sports images were discussed, and a concern about just how capable the SX50 might be in capturing such situations.  But that question got buried so deeply in that other thread, few responded.  So I re-asked about it in a more fresh, new thread right here.

Undoubtedly a DSLR still rules roost for taking action pictures.  But just how possible are such action sports images captured with this camera?  Is the only way to do it, the one where you focus on a spot and wait for the action to appear in that area?  Try shooting a defenseman in hockey.

Camera settings, and especially some sample images, would be welcomed by several of us.  Thanks.
