I see capacity as 17950 and NBA close to 19750. Any official word and will there be standing room in party areas and suites like in Chicago? Do the Rangers note all the available seats like NBA(thinking of the 20 or so floor suites)?
The 17200 capacity was last year. They don't include the suites in that number. That's probably the reason why the capacity dropped, but I doubt there are 1000 seats in those "event-level" suites there.

They said a while back that the capacity won't change, but I'm not sure if that's been updated or not.
