i'll want the very best out of my photographs, so quality is key, and
budget is no issue.
Welcome aboard Brandon. This will be a fun post to reply to especially since you mentioned that "budget is no issue."
Lens wise I'll add the following:
Portrait work: If you are shooting full frame then the 85mm f/1.2L ($1700) is the best choice for you. If you are going to shoot on a cropped body then you might want to look at the 50mm f/1.2L ($1200) or the 24-70 f/2.8L ($1100). If IS is important to you then take a look at te 24-105 f/4L IS ($1000). For your late night shooting around Calgary take a look at the 35mm f/1.4L ($1100).
For sporting events you are going to have a few choices too. Since soccer is outdoor and lighting generally isn't and issue you would probably be happy with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS ($1500). If you really need speed and budget isn't an issue then take a look at the mighty 300mm f2.8L IS ($3800).
Since hockey will be shot indoors where lighting is more challenging then you'll need to look at some very fast primes to get the great shots. One of my all time favorite lenses is the 135mm f/2L ($900). It's a beautiful lens with incredible bokeh.
As far as ISO is concerned follow Studini's advice, always stick to the lowest possible ISO you can get away with.
You will probably get more specific answers if you can narrow down the body to either a full framed camera like the Canon 5D, or 1Ds MII, a speed demon like the 1D MIII, or a 1.6 crop body like the 40D. Have fun shopping. No budget shopping must be fun, I'm green with envy.
