Why should the NHL care how big an arena is? If I think I can make the most money with a 9,000 seat arena then the NHL should go and pound sand.
It's not like 13,000 is some ridiculous number, it's only 1500 fewer people than the Frankenstein half-rink the Isles are actually going to be playing their other 35 home games at. The Isles on The Island makes a lot of marketing sense for them and if the Ratner people turn the Coliseum into a half decent arena then they could make just as much money from those games (since they'll be events they can charge premium prices for) as from their games in Brooklyn.
