Default sports camera? Rebel vs D-100

Which is the better sports camera for taking Hockey pictures? I've narrowed my search and budget down to the digital Rebel and the Nikon D-100. What do you think? Which one will AF faster on the moving subjects? What lens would you recommend?
Thanks

I have the Rebel and like it for shooting sports. I know little about the D-100. From looking at the specs, they seem to be in the same ballpark, but hopefully someone with broader experience can compare them for you.

Especially if you'll be shooting through the glass (ie no flash) you'll want as good a lens as you can get. Given that and the price difference between the cameras, I'd lean more toward the Rebel and spend the difference on a better lens. Here's the one I want someday, but it'll depend on what your budget is. http://www.usa.canon.com/html/eflens...-200_28is.html

Look for different opinions on lenses in the lens-specific forums on Steve's site.

Here's a website with hockey samples with a D100:
