Impossible to say really. We'd be on the hook for Weber's bonus money. Salary wouldn't be paid, though. The Flames sent out a memo to staffers informing them of pay cuts if there is a lock out. I would imagine that isn't abnormal among NHL teams. I'm not sure what operational costs of the arena would be without a hockey team playing. I mean, you can't just shut the building down entirely.

FWIW, the Swedish Elite League said it won't allow short term deals for NHL players if there is a lock out. There goes one option to make money on the side.
