Zero impact?

Many hockey fans in Southern Ontario can now travel less to see a game by going to Markham, and don't have to deal with border hassles. Plus this new team would have games televised in Southern Ontario (unlike the Sabres) - which can turn a few Sabres fans into Toronto2 fans and will give future generations more reason to be Toronto2 fans (instead of Sabre fans).

People don't pay attention to invisible territorial lines.

Much like a team in Hamilton, you can bet the Sabres will also feel threatened about a team in Markham.
