Or just the threat of a league approved relocation to Hamilton/So Ontario/GTA - which could be approved over the Leafs objections.

If the league wants to push the issue, they can get a second team in the GTA - at that point, the Leafs cut the best deal they can in terms of expansion/relocation/territorial fees and/or cuts of the new teams revenues.
