And especially when you have an area like southern Ontario, where no one city in itself might be big enough to support an NHL franchise (other than probably Hamilton), but all of those cities taken together could easily support a team.
If you drew a circle with Woodstock (the 401/403 intersection) at the center with a radius extending out 75km, the population within that circle would be well over 2 million, likely close to 3 million.
