Certainly you must cancel it at the end of the season or you'll be charged the monthly fee through seasons where you have no use for the service.
    I tried this with CBS a few years ago when they were providing streaming for a UNH opponent (Vermont?). After being billed for three subsequent months I disputed the charges with my credit card company. They removed the three charges, opened a dispute with CBS to stop the billing. Never again.
    I will not be out cheered in my own building.

      I have no problem with becoming a retail customer in the usual sense but I'm not inclined to be forced into becoming a member of anything. I don't need any more robocalls, spam, and junk mail than I already get. Looks like I'm relegated to following games via live stats.
      Use a junk email address and either your old (nonexistent) landline or just enter your cell phone but one digit off.

        Sacred Heart is building a 4,000 seat on campus rink. Add them as a potential candidate for Hockey East at some point.

        Bobby Valentine getting stuff done!

          Agree that this seems like a strategy for a Hockey East move. The news reports I had access to made no mention of how the rink is getting funded. Do you know if the funds are already raised?

            @jimmyconnelly: Have learned some ADs in @hockey_east favor moving away from single-sport league and having all-sport conference administrate hockey. Could be @AmericaEast or another and is far from final, but could also spell the end of Hockey East as we know it. Full story on @USCHO tomorrow.

            How ****ing dumb would they have to be to do this

              This would be hard to do... only 4 Hockey East teams are in America East with 6 other conferences represented in Hockey East...

                  America East would oversee the conference with their staff. What is the staff of Hockey East really doing for the teams? Could America Eastís staff do just as good as Hockey East? I will argue they would do an even better job.

                    I just looked at the Hockey East twitter page which has very minimal original content. They basically slice up the players of the week video they get from the schools, make a video and post it. Everything else is retweets of conference teams.

                    https://twitter.com/hockey_east

                    America East on the other hand has interviews which they are taping on their own, podcasts, etc.

                    https://twitter.com/AmericaEast

                    Why is Hockey East not doing the same thing?

                      I will still call it Hockey East

                      Honestly, we probably wouldn't even notice a big difference if this were to happen. But what would America East gain in doing this?

                        This just sounds needless and a bad idea all around, at least to me.

                          We arenít even sure if it America East yet but would be another sport under them and give the league more resources.

                          Isnít the CHA and the new womenís hockey conference run by Atlantic Hockey?

                            If the only thing that changes is the logo on the jerseys, it could be a good thing. Donít all sports conferences have voting rights for rule changes and didnít the B1G schools submit changes the rest of College Hockey couldnít vote on?
