The poor Leaf fans are unfailingly loyal. Even if the ACC looked dead, people still paid for those seats they didn't use to attend the game. They know if they actually boycott, it could take 20+ years or more to acquire season tickets again.

I wish Southern Ontario would get another team. The market is there and the league could be making so much more revenue. Plus one more Canadian team increases the possibility that a Canadian will ever win the cup again.

As for how that would effect attendance for the Leafs, the market is so big, they would still likely sell out. Leaf fans are crazily loyal. There are second and third generation displaced Ontarions living in Vancouver who were brought up Leaf fans. It's almost ingrained in their blood.
