Pretty much this. Bettman was an Islanders fan in his heydays. So I'll bet he has a small bias for the team. That being said, he knows we have fans in the shadows.

Losing a 'New York' market would look bad on the league. Bettman knows that.
Just like when the NFL left LA. (Which they are trying to amend.)
