The Marlies have future and current Leafs on the team and they can't sell out playoff games. They play 5 mintues away from the ACC and the arena isn't THAT bad.

The best hockey city in the North America is Minnesota and Toronto is far behind them in terms of support at all levels.
Marlies are currently 2nd in league attendance, and the generals usually are among the largest in attendance.

Not to mention the GTHL is the largest development league in the world, just because major junior teams aren't followed extensively (which they are anyway I don't get where this came from considering Missisauga having a pretty good turn out this season and the generals are always among the best) doesnt mean its not a hockey city.
