In fairness to GHOST, he has had to endure plenty of comments suggesting any city beyond the current six would be too small to support an NHL team. As such, it is a valid to point out that market penetration in Canada is deeper-- more people per capita will go to games and watch on TV. This isn't opinion, but data backed up by market research. The goose and gander approach, if you will.
