They're wasting their money on an NHL caliber arena (if it really is) because no way no how would a 2nd Toronto team ever go to Markham. Smallest Population in the GTA, Least interest for hockey among their demographics in the GTA, Terrible highway access, terrible Public transit and on the wrong side of the side of Toronto.
