I wonder how many we will see. There is not much of a difference in a break year or not, the non break years are kinda of skewed by a full lockout (thank you Bettman) and a 1/2 lock out (again thank you Bettman) but the numbers are close. Each time after the break the trades seem to be full of action even thought media experts predict it could be slow.
