I imagine the answer could easily be "Both" - there are enough hockey fans in the Golden Horseshoe to support 3 teams. I chose GTA2/Markham because Hamilton doesn't do much to support its AHL Bulldogs, so I wonder how hockey-mad they are there (or if it's just that they're close enough to Toronto/Buffalo that they don't have to pay attention to the AHL).

The Leafs would still be the premier team in the neighbourhood - like the Rangers are in the NYC area. Of course, the new Golden Horseshoe franchises would probably fare a lot better than the Isles and Devils financially.
