Also true... now I understand where you were going with it.
I guess my point is that for the NHL it's not just about turning a relocated franchise around, because they could do that by putting a team in Winnipeg, Hamilton or Quebec City. But if they put another one in Toronto, then can also reap the rewards and money from a very successful venture and help their troubled teams as well.
Bottom line - is putting another team in Toronto helping to grow the sport? No. It's a move to help their finances and that's it.
