If it happens, great! And I will be sitting at my computer when season tickets go on sale hoping to cash in on the secondary market just like everyone else, but the feeling around acquiring the team is nothing like Winnipeg or Quebec.
Winnipeg and Quebec are seen as wrongs that need to be righted. GTA2 has no such sentimental attachments. It is a pure business decision.
I agree with you. As another GTA NHL fan I'd love to see a second NHL team in the GTA and I'd be lined up to get tickets, but you're right...there's no groundswell of emotion for a second team.
