Well.... depends. All things being equal, I think that Hamilton makes more sense to have an NHL franchise as, despite claims to their territory by Toronto and Buffalo, they are their own unique, independent market.

That being said, once Markham's new arena is finished, they'll have much better facilities than Hamilton. On top of that, think you could easily make the claim that they'd have more opportunities to make money than Hamilton, even if every single person that goes to Markham games are just Leafs fans wanting a cheaper NHL fix for the first two decades.

Think both would be good for the NHL, but see it as an either/or situation, if any, and certainly not both.
