This is the one good thing that could come from a tax loophole like the being closed. As much as I hate the Leafs, I feel bad for that so much of their fanbase has been squeezed out of the opportunity to see their team live because of the corporate ticket base snatching up the tickets and driving up the price in the process.

Agreed. Corporations don't buy these sorts of things just because they can write it off anyway (though I'm sure it doesn't hurt either). Tickets will still be sold, even if they can't be written off.
