While as a fan I agree with you, as a realist it makes a ton of sense for the NHL and NHLPA to want Toronto to get another team. If the fact we've had roughly 150 regular season games and one full playoff canceled under Bettman's watch say anything, it's that the owners and players care a lot more about the dollars than what city would love to have a team.

In that order.
I agree with this list, though Markham has to be tossed into the consideration now given their new arena deal. Hamilton is also on the backburner. That is of course, unless you were including Markham and Hamilton as Toronto-area, in which case I retract that.
