I think Quebec should get a team first (I'm still appalled the Nordiques left in the first place) but yes I believe there needs to be a second team in the GTA to keep the Leafs honest.
Better reason is so some fans can get to games. I saw the local tv numbers in another Forbes article. Panthers get 3,000 viewers per game, Phoenix gets 10,000, hockey hotbed Pittsburgh gets 100,000. Discussed on the Fan today Leafs get 775,000. Sort of puts it all into a proper perspective.
