But regardless of my opinions on them, the point is they're now going to add another ball into the mix to give ontario or toronto further chance to win a cup. Too bad if the new toronto team wins a cup they won't be the leafs anyways.
Not only that but, shouldn't it be illegal to make two franchises in the exact same city using the exact same arena? OK, so George Gillett or his brother in-law could go buy Nashville, a bunch of other 3rd rate teams, and move them to Montreal, then eventually we'll just have 3-5 teams per city in the NHL and it'll become more just gambling to win a cup then actually playing to win. How about Cote-St-Luc, Dollard Des Ormeaux, Pierrefonds and Lasalle all get their own team now
Give me a break. As if that wouldn't be bad, making 2 in Toronto/Surrounding areas would be even more retarded.
This is ridiculous, people think adding an expansion would make them a laughing stock? Adding a 2nd team in 1 already struggling city (struggling team wise, not financially) is the most ridiculous thing I think I've heard. What makes them think the new Toronto would be so special. All they have to do is just build from within on their CURRENT Toronto.
Imo this is just Toronto propaganda this story, or dumb fans pushing for a new team cause they're bitter with the leafs being so ****.
If the NHL wants to branch out, convert current teams, heck even expand, I say take the european route. Start bringing more mainstream hockey to Europe. Convert Nashville and one other team into the first two Euro teams.
That my dear is one of the most hilarious post I've ever read...
WoW, just WOW !!
Wake up, there's nothing to do with the Ontario wanting to increase their Stanley Cup chances, but it's about Financial issues...
Anywhere in Canada would be better than places like Florida, Nashville, Atlanta and Phoenix. I would be glad if it happens... Toronto region, Hamilton, Winnpeg or whatever...
