... I see what your saying, but no, 50 miles from City Limit to City Limit. Not 100 miles with a 50 mile radius border. It just strikes me as being antiquated, a relic. Wouldnt it make more sense to make it 50 miles from the teams arena? City Limits are ever changing, growing & expanding. I cant imagine the authors of the NHL's Constitution in drafting the provision could have even imagined what Toronto's become with its urban sprawl. York & Leaside were Villages, Lawrence Park the suburbs, Hoggs Hollow "up north". The Jolly Miller Tavern and that was it. Fishing for salmon in the Don River. The Sheppard farm, a station at Richmond Hill then nothin but bush & farmland til you hit Holland Marsh, Lake Simcoe & Barrie. A frikin 2 day trip.
