Some will....but most won't. For a whole wack-load of reasons.

Would an AHL team affiliated with the Devils do well at Nassau Veteran Memorial Coliseum?? I doubt it....don't you?
while the bulldogs are in the bottom 1/3 of attendance, they do quite well based on revenue and draw better than the baby leafs in toronto. There are quite a few habs fans in southern ontario.

I'd expect that because quebecors (city) primarily hate montreal and toronto, it would be easier for them to accept an ottawa team than any other farm team. If it was explained to the fanbase as a stepping stone to the NHL, i think they could embrace it.
