I think the Toronto area is the ideal place to have a second team.

It may take time to develop a big fan base, but Toronto is a very populous, yet hockey-craving city.

Personally, when I get to see my team, the Leafs, playing in Ottawa, there are practically as many Leafs fans as there are Sens fans, just for the simple reason that it is incredibly hard to get tickets in Toronto.

Having a second team would allow people to cheer for a new team and hopefully even build a rivalry.

I'm sorry to Kansas City and Las Vegas, but I guess you'll have to keep dreaming with your Center-Ice package.
