If Toronto gets a second team
 
if a second team comes to Toronto,
how many people would switch elegance
and become fans of the new team?
personaly i woudn't, but still want a second
team here

I remember the talk about it in 2004 - 2005 but Hamilton/Seattle/KC/Vegas would be a couple lightyears ahead of a second Toronto team..
To answer your question I would not switch teams.

I dunno. I'm not very elegant to begin with. Don't know what I would be switching to. Like no way am I walking around looking like Celine Dion.

No to a 2nd NHL team in Toronto ever.

This is Leafs town and i hope MLSE tries to block any attempt to bring another NHL team to Toronto.

glasses91 01-27-2013 09:27 PM

it makes no sense...go east.

Confucius 01-27-2013 09:28 PM

I'd go and watch games at the new arena, don't think I'd switch teams though. It would be funny being a Leaf fan and almost never actually going to a game at the ACC, while I'd probably go often to the other team's games. LMAO

By having a second team gives MLSE competition and the urgency to win, so maybe our laffs would win for once.

:laugh: And that's the thread

TmlHockeyFan 01-27-2013 09:32 PM

I would switch depending on:

1) Which city they are in. (Toronto)
2) What the colours of their Jersey are (Blue and Black would be awesome)
3) The name of the team. (Toronto Warriors)
4) What the logo is. (A Longsword/Knightsword)

If all of the above conditions are not met then no. :laugh:

Jerkini 01-27-2013 09:35 PM

If I could cheer for another team, you think I'd still be a Leafs fan? Lets be realistic.

tml145 01-27-2013 09:41 PM

it would be sad if a new team in toronto wins a cup before the leafs

Erdinger 01-27-2013 09:44 PM

I'm a Leafs fan. I know a second team would come here and be more successful but I couldn't change my allegiance.

glasses91 01-27-2013 09:44 PM

would they take 1 player from each team?

Erdinger 01-27-2013 09:45 PM

Toronto Toros

No ****ing thank you, when you become a Leaf fan, you're in it for life.

firstemperor 01-27-2013 09:52 PM

I bleed blue and white, but its wavering every year, and I don't mean I'm going to switch allegiances or anything but I'm becoming more and more pessimistic about the ownership, management, etc. etc. in bringing this city a winner.

In other words, I would not hesitate supporting another team. But that only happens if it's a toronto-based team.

Stephen 01-27-2013 09:52 PM

I'm almost certain that a second GTA team would be run like the Nashville Predators: management stability, fantastic homegrown drafts, competitive teams year in and year out, and it will make the ineptitude of the Leafs that much more depressing.

Sometimes it feels like being a partisan in a sports war. Little chance of success,brutal hits from the enemy(Habs,Sen,Canucks,Jets fans) but we know we will overcome although we will probably all be dead when it happens.:D

Daisy Jane 01-27-2013 10:04 PM

Are they really bringing a new team to Toronto/area? With the Jets an Eastern team?
Detroit/Columbus still desperate to be an Eastern team?

(and no. I'm a Leaf-er for life).

Ramboshaw 01-27-2013 10:07 PM

Personally I would love to see Seattle or Portland get an NHL team. Would make a great rivalry with Vancouver.

Not being rude but wtf?

RogerRoeper* 01-27-2013 10:09 PM

Toronto is by far the best option for a new NHL team. That said, the Leafs will try to block it, and I don't blame them one bit.

Gryph 01-27-2013 10:42 PM

I think a second team would be great for Toronto. It would almost instantly be economically strong, and I would love to see how MLSE reacts if/when they have to finally become accountable for their options. It drives me crazy that MLSE can basically do whatever they want because they have a monopoly on the GTA

I'm 100% with him.

Semantics 01-27-2013 11:04 PM

I'd cheer for them, it's hard to see the Leafs winning with this corporate ownership.

If the Leafs ever got good I'd probably get back on the bandwagon though.
