Handful of NHL governors whispering about team in Toronto

Toronto may double the pleasure! Now the Islanders can be ranked #31.

Yeah, I heard about this... I'm not sure what to think about it honestly... It could make ticket prices more competitive though

ETA: I still think Hamilton might be a good idea if they were to go along with this...

That's complete and utter B.S.

I think Winnipeg, Quebec City or even Hamilton should get a team before Toronto does.

Although, it would be kind of fun to see the second Toronto team win a Cup before the Leafs do. That would be funny in myriad ways.

A few NHL officials might be "whispering" about this move, but it's not going to happen. The NHL is focusing on their current roster of teams. Not on moving teams or adding teams.

The Rangers and Islanders might have "New York" in front of their team names, but they're from two different markets. The Rangers have the New York City market and the Islanders have the Long Island market. My point being is that the NHL doesn't have any one team that truly shares its market. The Rangers/Islanders markets definitely overlap, but they have two distinctly different markets. The Long Island market is many notches below the NYC market.

Sorry, but Toronto is a Leaf town and the NHL won't be bringing in another team.

I'm not very familiar with California markets but what about LA/Anaheim/San Jose?

No one there likes hockey, so there's no overlap.

I agree with not having two teams right in TO, but I think SWO could support one, whether it be Hamilton, London* etc. I agree it should be an existing team too - not an expansion. I don't know if there'd be an appetite for growing a fanbase to a completely new team.

While there might be an overlap, they're all different markets. The Ducks aren't calling themselves the Anaheim Ducks of Los Angelos. They're from Anaheim and that's that.

Btw, you can blame Wayne Gretzky for the Sharks and the Ducks. If it weren't for him going to LA back in 1988, the rest of California might not have given a shit about hockey.

Not sure it was a curse so much as a stupid move to put Cujo in net when he hadn't even played during the game

eh, people get too worked up over shit like that, it was kind of fun I thought - totally unexpected and different.

It didn't work but it's not like we’re going to win the cup this year or anything, might as well have some fun while you are it.
