Not really. The Sens aren't big anywhere west of Kingston really. Ottawa and Toronto aren't like Baltimore and Washington or even Edmonton and Calgary. It's a 5 hour drive between the two cities. The Leafs and Sens are completely different markets.
A new team would be competing directly against the Leafs though. It will no doubt be challenge for the team to gain a footing, as we've seen with Clippers in LA. The market, however, should be able to not only support the team in the long-team but allow it to be one of the most profitable in the league.
