Toronto (Hamilton / Markham) could have two teams quite easily. Leafs will fight for it not to happen which is why it probably won't.
Yeah there was talk about Markham getting a team, which is weird cause it's basically just a different district of Toronto. But whoever said Toronto needs to grow, i'm not sure they've been here. This place is too big for it's own good, and is actually quite annoying. The issue that came up with Hamilton is that it also fit in the whole geographical boundaries or whatever for the Leafs and the Sabres. The Sabres also get a lot of Canadian business as it's closer for many and much cheaper and easier to get to games than Toronto, where you can't get tickets unless you deal with scalpers half the time. Personally, I believe that the next place that gets a team will be Seattle and then QC. After that, maybe Hamilton will get a team, but I really think that relocation should be back on the table for a team like Florida. Nashville isn't going anywhere. They have a strong fanbase from what i've seen/heard and their fans have really seem to have taken to the game.
