ESPN NY story from Strang with a couple more points:
According to NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, via a league spokesperson, the issue is an "internal matter upon which we are not commenting."
Although at least one league source doubted the capacity issues would be a deterrent -- "I don't think that would be a determining factor," the source told ESPNNewYork.com -- another person briefed on the situation believes otherwise.
That source said sacrificing revenue on those six games at Nassau, which is expected to hold a capacity of 13,000 fans after renovations, is a major concern.
