For me, three reasons.
1) I live in Charlotte, and this was 1st time a 12-game pack was offered with all SAT/SUN games. We could see every game. No guarantee we'll get that again when hockey resumes.
2) My wife goes to the games with me. She is incredibly angry at the rampant greed and says she will never support the players again. This is a lady who has attended "skate with the Canes" and owns an autographed sweater. She used to be fanatical. Now she couldn't care less.
3) We have limited discretionary income for entertainment, and we're getting a puppy in January. That money will come in handy (crate, vet exam, building a run, etc.).
