No, it definitely burns a year. Some ELCs will slide but anything else doesn't. A bunch of media guys have confirmed it (too lazy to find which ones) and you can also see the last lockout for proof that the year is burned up under a lockout.

Edit: Here's proof, Adam Proteau says they count just as if the games were being played.
