I supposed higher priced STH may want their money back.  I'm not sure myself.

Definitely not buying Amerks or Bandits tickets.

Even if you don't have seasons, what would you pick?

It would be money I would/could put towards my annual ski trip, which is going to Vail and Beaver Creek this year.  I would much rather have the money to put to good use, but that's just me.

Refund.  Down payment on a new car, investing, saving, Hawaiian vacation...whatever, just something other than giving it to the NHL.

1.  What payments are being refunded?  The general season-ticket deposit, or amounts corresponding to canceled games?

2.  If you request a refund, do you lose your season tickets?

If you don't lose your tickets, I'd get the refund.

I have two 200 level tickets 6k - I was on the waiting list for 3 years and don't want to give up my seats. I will let the funds sit until January and then decide long term.

You only have the choices for the games that are currently "locked out".  You don't lose your season tickets for taking the cash on the pre-season and 4 (so far) home games.

Miss Optimistic is leaving her money with the Sabres.  If I were to take the money and the cancelled games get rescheduled I'd have to pay all over again.  Besides, 4% interest is more than any checking/savings account would pay me.

True, with the 4% interest point. But isn't that interest heading to your SabreBucks card? It's not coming back to you as cash, right?

If the season is canceled, I want my cash back, and not left on deposit for 2013-14.

It will make for a nice vacation.

Yeah.  You can use it anywhere at the Arena.  Concessions, tickets, etc.  For the amount I would get for even a whole year doesn't amount to more than a hundred or so.

I held back on my last payment so technically I still owe THEM money.

You can always ask for the money back.

Not Signing up for online NHL or for the Cable Channel, in fact I am think of cancelling the whole sports package I have given how the Bills are doing... What's the point.  I have more fun watching my two sons play.  At least they play and their teams are winning.

I'd let it stay where its at. If I pulled it I wouldn't have the jack to pay when they settle this nonsense. As far as the hockey package they haven't started charging me

What would you rather have 3 hours of?

10 sessions of a hot, 21 year old with C cup num nums, tonsils of velvet, and a dusting of lake effect snow?

or....

41 sessions of Millsie, Pommers, Stafford, and the rest of the tonsils of velvet?

It pretty much is the same price.

Of course this is aimed at the single gentlemen in the room.....

Correct.  What nonsense.
That's where I'm at.  I'll take the 4% interest for what's cancelled prior to the season going rack up.

If the season goes rack up, I'll leave the SBC balance as a placeholder get the rest of my money back and pay my deposit when I know there's a season.
