There are some other perks to using the Prudential Center too - some people can stay in the new hotel right there, or they can have hospitality rooms if they need to. Catering options and transportation are two big things.

Frankly there are better power requirements and internet connectivity at the Prudential Center than the Izod...

And finally, there's more "premium space" at the Prudential Center. They could setup on the floor of the rink, and then the teams can have meals and "private" space at the bunker bar (Platinum Lounge) underneath the stands and just walk in/out to the floor. They also could use the restaurant Acela Lounge for private space, including the very private owner's room there for league types and what have you.

The Izod has a fraction of that premium space available.
