That is true, but I do believe there was a concerted effort made at the league level to manufacture sellouts at an unprecedented level.

That's admittedly pure conspiracy theory on my part, but from a marketing standpoint, it makes sense as a way to psychologically create demand post a nasty lockout in which fans hated both the NHL and the Union. I've never seen so many league wide "sellouts" in games that clearly are not sellouts.
