The article reports that publicly financed hockey arenas in Dallas and Glendale, Arizona, hope to attract concerts and other events to fill the void left by the National Hockey League player lockout. Debt service on the bonds used to build these arenas would not be threatened by the shutout, arena operators said, thanks to financial arrangements already in place. The last stoppage in 1994-95 forced the cancellation of 468 NHL games. That stoppage lasted 103 days, and resulted in a regular season for each team of only 48 games instead of the scheduled 84.
