NHL says it's 45 days that the arenas can book events for right? So lets say an agreement os reached on day X. Does that mean we have to wait until day X+45 to see hockey? Or can they start say 2 weeks after day X and just work a schedule around the days the arena is already booked? I would think (and hope) the latter. Anyone know how booked thier arenas are? I live in Calgary and there seems to be very little happening at the Saddledome.
