I am not sure if there is a (reasonable) point where Toronto would be in trouble.

NOTE : Every Canadian knows that Ottawa is a government town and the people who live in the Capital, forgive the stereotype, do not like to pay for anything. That is the reason Ottawa stands at 10%.
Well, that last bits gonna put you in real solid with the innumerable posters from Ottawa to Calabogie Peaks Kevy. Better pull out the galoshes & yellow slicker before it really starts to pour... As for the rest; 3 words - Canadian Equalization Payments. The NHL is a collective, a "hive". Whether its Revenue Sharing or Jeremy Jacobs supplying Dixie Cups & hot dogs in Nashville for the next 35yrs from the inside out this is generally a group that protects itself from the vagaries & fluctuations in the US Greenback or Canadian Loonie
