So the net effect between the Sabres and Rangers together is only about -500 seats.

Of course, for a full analysis, you need to look at all the teams in the league and sum up all the changes in capacity this past offseason.
Buffalo actually hasn't sold out every game this season and I believe it is mostly due to the new CBA rules which force you to hold a certain amount of tickets and then put them on sale closer to game time. I think everyone believes the games are all sold out but there are still tickets available for every game because of this. Ted Black talked about this on the radio this morning. As we speak, there are still plenty of tickets available and the Habs are in town..this is unheard of usually.
