The problem with that is the Maple Leafs also share the Air Canada Centre with the Toronto Raptors and Toronto Rock. So there aren't enough dates to accomodate the Marlies for a full AHL season. However during the 2012 Calder Cup Playoffs the Richo was sold out for all the Marlies home games right until Games 3 & 4 of the Calder Cup Finals. So the people of Toronto came out to support them.
