How are the Leafs competition to the OHL franchises? Only 18k can go to a Leafs game out of a population of more than 5 million. And most nights they probably aren't playing at the same time. The Chicago Wolves who play in suburab Chicago do great despite the Blackhawks. The 67's, Hitmen, Oil Kings and Giants do great. The Alberta teams play in the same frickin arena as the NHL clubs, have a small fraction of the population to draw from and get 3 to 4 times the attendance. Those my friends, are hockey towns. Toronto (GTA) is a Leafs town.
I think soccer is a more popular sport here.
