If you're based in the outskirts of a major city, it'd be in your best interest to be named after that city. If Markham gets a team, only way that they're not named "Toronto" would be if the Leafs decided to lessen their indemnity demands for a new team (or stipulated that a new team couldn't be named after the city) as part of whatever agreement allowed them to move in in the first place.
and the other way the teams not named Toronto..

put it in Hamilton
