I'm not arguing, but do you really think fans would bail on the Leafs (and to a lesser extent, the Sabres)? Aren't they supposed to be one of the most loyal and die hard fan bases in all of sports? I'm not from the area so maybe I am way off base, but for instance, if a new team sprung up closer to me than the Flyers, I would not jump ship on the Flyers and I imagine many, if not all of you, feel the same way.
I could see it being an easier adjustment in a less popular team's area or even slightly further away. Again, not arguing, but I just can't imagine a team's fan base like the Leafs (or the Sabres) being cut split up like that.
