It's great that fans from those cities drive to Toronto for Leafs games. However just because fans from those cities come up for Leafs games if they get tickets, it doesn't make them a Toronto market.
Keep in mind, that Canada calculates their statistics differently than the USA. If toronto was in the usa the GTA wouldn't be used for marketing purposes. The golden horsehoe whould be and the would include Oshawa Hamilton brantford Guelph and probably the tri city KW area. The same way the bay area includes Oakland San Jose or Miami includes halfway up the Florida coast or Washington Baltimore, Detroit flint, Chicago Gary
