I could also argue that with Toronto being a far larger city than Montreal, a larger fan base should be expected. Obviously there are loads of Habs fans in Toronto, just like there are loads of Leafs fans in Montreal, so it's hard to say really. I'd give the edge to the Leafs, but they're pretty much neck in neck. I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
I think the biggest dividing line is language. Most of Montreal's fan base is French, which makes them the runaway favourite team if you watch RDS. Take away that French demographic and there's no contest which team corners the English North American market that watches CBC and TSN - Toronto.
