There's been a HUGE population boom in the Toronto region, I have no doubt that a team in Markham or whatever would EASILY work and it wouldn't hurt the leafs one bit.
I'm not saying it wouldn't be viable, because I think it would be. I just don't see the NHL wanting to add another team to Toronto and rather add another another team in the US, especially if Quebec gets a team.
