I'm a tad late to the party...just wanted to say that I think, although it's a big gamble on my part, that an NHL calibre rink that is being pushed as a concert venue in Markham may be a good thing for Hamilton.
Eventually the NHL will go to MLSE and say 'Look....another team has to go in this area...the market is too big and demand is too high. Now there is Markham or there is Hamilton'.
I gotta figger the MLSE brass will be jumping out of their seats yelling "HAMILTON!! HAMILTON!!"

From an NHL perspective I'd still think Hamilton is more attractive than Markham if renovations or a new building are on the horizon (5 to 10 years). Spreads things out a bit....and avoids the whole Clippers/Mets type thing.
