In 20 years, I'd say it's almost certain the the Canadiens or Leafs will sustain if not grow their local market and support and continue to be bigger than their soccer counterparts.

I can't say the same for Chicago, Boston or Philly... Nobody know's if Hockey will sustain itself in the US with certainty, but we can almost surely bet on that in Canada.

Also, those 3 teams you speak of have been successful as of late, which helps your argument.

The Canadiens will forever be bigger than the Impact, at least in my life time.
Demographics. Hockey is expensive. MLS will may never catch NHL but Soccer will catch hockey
