Among those cities only Windsor, Mississauga and Niagra compete with NHL teams.
Windsor is just across the river from Detroit and I'm sure a lot of Red Wings fans live there.
Niagara would compete with Buffalo and Sabres fans.
Mississauga is obviously in the Toronto market against the Maple Leafs.
Besides that I wouldn't say Guelph, Plymouth, Oshawa, Brampton, Kitchener, Sarnia, Barrie and even London are not on the outskirts of competing with the Maple Leafs and the Toronto market. Those cities are between 1 - 4 hours away depending on where you are going.
