This is a similar debate amongst Habs fans who want a junior or an AHL team in Montreal. I'll always contend that Montreal isn't a hockey city, it's a Habs city.
I agree, Toronto is a Leaf town. Even the Marlies don't sell out.

Personally I have friends who grew up in Toronto playing hockey, worshipping the Leafs, obsessed with EA NHL games but as we got older, many many of them started to lose interest in hockey and started to watch football, basketball...etc.
That is correct. Might be because the Leafs have sucked for eternity.

If not Toronto, what town is a hockey town?
