No, it could be from very short (1-2 months) to very long (1-2 seasons.
If lockout is short, let's say 1 month, Panthers would benefit (at least short term), they have only three home games:

"If the lockout wiped out the opening month, the Panthers would lose just three home games and would save big bucks by not paying salary nor paying for a long scheduled road trip Long Island, Winnipeg and Minnesota.

October is traditionally a tough sell for NHL teams around the league -- and especially in Florida."

But somehow I would be very sure, that even losing one month, NHL would do some rescheduling (uneven number games, home games etc).
