Thoughts on the idea of a second (additional) Toronto club?

It'd be a win win scenario. Leafs having inhouse competition would mean their management has to get their act together and ice a winner no matter $, another Canadian team will increase the revenue a lot - e.g. Winnipeg - but MLSE will never ever allow that to happen :(

Considering the two largest broadcasting companies in Canada (Rogers and Bell) own the Maple Leafs, good luck housing another team and obtaining broadcast rights. Rogers will just buy everything and stop it from happening just like every other company up here now. CBC is already feeling pressure from them as it is.

Arent there any anti monopolistic laws in Canada? According to some sites Rogers & Bell are turning more and more into a whole canadian monopolstatus..

Leafs becoming a contender again would be great for the league.

Yes it would.

The Wings nearly faced the Leaf back in 2002 Cup Finals...That would've been epic, and I honestly feel the Leafs might've made things a bit closer in the series.

Yes there are... Now ask me if they are inforced at all? We have many monopolies in canada, for example Bell has always had a landline monopoly, CN railway has the freight train monopoly, via rail has the passenger train monopoly, the government won't allow companies to come in and offer decently priced cell phone plans, internet services etc... Our whole system is based around monopolies, yet it is supposed to be governed so there are no monopolies, go figure eh.

EDIT: oh I forgot this little gem, companies like all-state that offer no deductable as a way of rewarding good drivers are not allowed to offer that in canada because the government will make less money.

Maybe the new boss of MLSE didn't like Burke.

I'm thinking it could possibly have something to do with Luongo.

Sportsnet says Burke didn't want to pull the trigger on the Luongo trade.

Plus Cujo in net for the Leafs. Wonder if that would have affected him coming here.

Well I've wanted both teams to lose but man the Bruins half assed their way to the second round. If the Leafs don't go into dreamland with 10 minutes remaining, this guy would have never gone to overtime. I really feel bad for Phil Kessel great guy and player, has to go through a lot of crap in the Toronto media.

 

I am going to cheer for the Rangers (how about that Lundquist guy back to back shutouts!) and of course Ottawain the east.

I would love to see the audience's reaction outside of the ACC as the Bruins made their epic comeback...I bet many left with "soiled undergarments" :lol:

I wonder if the new boss will ever find out they don't have a player named Jeffrey Lupul
