There's a larger population in Peel region. It would draw fans from Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton.

Someone should get on that and make an arena in Mississauga.

Move the Panthers there and call 'em the Peel Panthers. Money in the bank, shawty what you think? etc.

That'd be great. Every single night of the NHL regular season, there'd be a game to see somewhere in the GTA. Until the playoffs, of course. Then no games.
Missasauga is a bedroom community, out of the GTA cities Markham makes the most sense besides another city in Toronto proper. Besides, the Leafs draw as far east as Kingston, as far north as Barrie and as far west London, a team in Markham likely would too.

I really don't understand this, because it makes no sense. The talent level in the league is as great as it's ever been and pugilist only players have all but disappeared because of it. The league talent wise is ready for two more teams.

Two through expansion, two through relocation.

Then you'd still have Omaha, Portland and Houston available in case a team starts struggling financially and needs to be relocated.
If Markham get's a team there is no way Hamilton will get a team any time soon. There will then be 3 teams who can object (Bufflao, Toronto, and Markham). When this happens there will be only 2 cities who can get away with having a team and avoiding being in another cities market. Waterloo region and London.
