It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if an investment group bought the 'Yotes, and moved them to Markham (playing in Hamilton for a few years during arena construction). A 2nd Toronto area team would almost be a license to print money.
Phoenix averaged 12500 last year (****** but not 8500 ******) also like I said they don't have areans yet QC is a few years away once it is ready I think the nhl puts a team there ASAP but until then no matter where they move the areana is either too small or not a long term solution.
