It is more lucrative to the other 29 to have team elsewhere.

The NHL owns the power to grant expansion teams.

The Leafs can and might be taken care of politically, or otherwise, at some point. The league will still want a pretty penny for an expansion team in the GTA or one that effects an expansion into the GTA.
