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.
The Tampa game was reported as a sellout, right? It was strange on a couple of levels because at the game they announced 14,800 but it seemed like way more than that. So I'm not sure which way they're going. Either way I agree with your general premise.
