The reason that you can have 3 teams in NYC is because the NYC metro region has over 20 million people
For comparison, there are only 12 million in Ontario.
On top of that NYC has 3 distinct regions for teams, i'm not sure there is enough room/people for a second toronto team..
not to nitpick, but there is over 13.5 million people in Ontario.. of that 50% are in the greater Toronto area. If we were talking any other sport than hockey, i'd agree with you. but Hockey is king here, and frankly I bet Toronto could handle 3 NHL teams easier than NYC.
