Sellout reasoning isn't why its like this at all because that wouldn't make sense. You're not taking away the Devils vs. Lightning game, you're taking away a Devils home game against the Rangers which was going to sell out anyways (along with the Rangers @ Islanders game). So you're taking one sellout away and giving them another sellout.

Home team doesn't take any money away from the day itself. They're just given X dollars that they would've made anyways if the game was at home.. otherwise every team would to host and lay claim to the 20M+ they generate that day
