As far as hockey and money, Toronto and Montreal are the juggernaut, most of Canada is hangers-on, riding that particular gravy train to make their contribution to the NHL look bigger than it is.

Outside those two markets, the tiny but faithful Canadian markets vs the huge, tepid American markets is pretty much a pull. With the tiebreaker in my mind being what happens if one of those huge American markets becomes less tepid and starts buying into its team.

I consider the existing American big markets falling in love with hockey much more likely than, say, Winnipeg becoming a market to rival Toronto, or even Minnesota, anytime soon.
