Given the addition of another Staal (seriously, don't underestimate the fanboy factor), adding Semin, and the expansion of the fan zone the STH base is probably a good bit over 6000 now, and this is coming from an STH. I'd say it's been over 6000 for a while, probably peaked the year after the Cup followed by another spike after the Conference Finals.
And I know the fan zone tickets are hard to come by for season tickets. Regardless of if they've been bought by a broker, or by real fans, they're still season tickets sold.
The big question is if and how they count partials. Clearly a partial isn't an actual season ticket sold, but what's the huge difference between selling 2500 half season tickets or 1250 fulls on what wasn't plucked by STHs?
I couldn't estimate the actual number for the life of me though, I'll say that much. Somewhere between 9 and 10 (if the "highest STH sales ever" claim by JR is in fact true) is probably where we were at before this lockout but I wouldn't bank on that being accurate.
