    Was wondering why there is no thread at all on here for NHL CI for this year? Yes I know the players are locked out and who knows when the season will be, but has anyone called D on this yet and tried to get it free or with massive discounts to make it almost free yet? This is about the time we all call retention and try to do this....or are they not taking any calls on it right now?

    I dont believe they will even discuss it (or that there is any point to discussing it) until the CBA is sorted out.

    Dtrell -- what response did you get when you called and asked for a discount?

    I called D* and cancelled my auto-renew on NHL CI when Bettman announced the lockout. They didn't offer me anything to not do it (and it wouldn't have mattered anyway --I was determined to send Bettman a message).

    Right now I'm considering a season pass for AHL Live to watch the Houston Aeros on my PC instead (affiliate for my Minnesota Wild, and chock-full of high-end NHL prospects).

    The letter that NHL CI subs got a few months ago stated that there will be no charge made for NHL CI until or when the NHL starts playing. If they ended up playing a short season (say 40 games), I don't know if the package would be appropriately pro-rated, though, in price.

    They won't see any of my money, after they've procrastinated into another work stoppage. They need to take a haircut from the fans, for allowing this to happen again, seven years after losing a year.

    At this rate, I would expect that the NHL Network will probably start showing some AHL, OHL, and junior games once they get started due to the lack of NHL programming.
