HANDFUL OF NHL GOVERNORS WHISPERING ABOUT TEAM IN TORONTO
TSN.CA STAFF
10/21/2008 10:40:54 AM

It appears some National Hockey League officials think the Toronto market is big enough to have two teams.

According to The Globe and Mail, a few NHL governors are keen on the idea of putting a second team in Toronto.

''Why shouldn't we put another team in the best and biggest market in the world?'' one governor told the newspaper anonymously, adding one scenario involves Research in Motion CEO Jim Balsillie being awarded an expansion franchise after coming to the aid of the financially-strapped Nashville Predators.

Any suggestion of relocation or expansion into Canada's largest city is news to other league executives. "This has never been discussed in the governors meetings I've been involved in," Caroliona Hurricanes governor and general manager Jim Rutherford told TSN on Tuesday.

''I've heard bits and pieces of this scenario, although not in that kind of detail,'' Calgary Flames co-owner Harley Hotchkiss told The Globe and Mail. ''Our priority is to have the existing franchises solid.''

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment President Richard Peddie said his organization would listen to any expansion suggestions and downplayed any negative effect it could have on the Maple Leafs. "Any talk about expansion or relocation of another NHL team to southern Ontario is purely speculative," he told TSN. "If or when the National Hockey League comes to the Board of Governors with a recommendation on relocation or expansion of an NHL franchise, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment will analyze the recommendation and provide its input at that time."

Another governor told the newspaper the league would be better served by moving an exisiting team as opposed to granting an expansion franchise.

“I don't think it can be an expansion team,” the unnamed executive told The Globe and Mail. “We can't expand because we would be the laughingstock of professional sports. We've got too many troubled franchises."

In recent years, Balsillie has made attempts to buy the Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins amid speculation he would move the team to the southern Ontario region.

Files from The Globe and Mail were used in this report.

If you ask my bad self, another team in the GTA is not a good idea, because the existing team is not in good shape
with regard to contending for a title any time soon.


From "Puck Daddy: A Yahoo! Sports Blog":
Another NHL team for Toronto: No-brainer, with conditions

New team would be the Clippers to the Leafs' Lakers?!?
The "Maple Laughs" are practically the Clippers (comparatively) right about now! :lol:

It makes no difference if the Leafs suck or not. TO is the biggest hockey market in the WORLD. Another team would thrive regardless of what they do on the ice.

If multiple teams can excist in LA and New York, it can easily happen in TO.

If this doesnt happen right in TO, it will happen in a near by city sooner than later. Especially with the blackberry billionare hovering around that area.

Group unveils bid for 2nd franchise in Toronto
10 hours, 18 minutes ago

TORONTO (AP)—A Toronto-based group has come forward with a proposal to launch a second NHL franchise in the city in time for the 2012-13 season.

The Toronto Legacy Group suggested during a news conference on Friday that about $900 million in financing is already in place for the proposed expansion team.

The team would be known as the Toronto Legacy and play out of a 30,000-seat arena proposed for Downsview Park.

The group led by Andrew Lopez has proposed that 25 percent of its annual net profits would be divided among charitable foundations and nonprofit organizations.

Lopez says his group is not affiliated with Blackberry billionaire Jim Balsillie, who is looking to relocate the Phoenix Coyotes to Hamilton, Ontario.

The Legacy?!?
That nic may be part of a plan to bring Manny Legace back to the NHL.

Other than the anti-christ Bettman and MLSE going balls out to prevent this from happening, this would be great for the sport and Ontario in general.

That jersey Manny is wearing is one of the best in sports. Classic traditional blue, even if it does have the shit-eating bluenote blueboy and SG are fond of taking it up the ass in.

God bless the 314 taking it up the ass in hockey.

The Arizona Wile E. Coyotes are available :biggrin:

The City of Glendale, Ariz., sent the Coyotes scrambling after announcing it will explore the possibility of canceling the professional management services and arena lease agreement between the city and IceArizona, which owns the NHL team.
Glendale alleges the team breached its 15-year, $225 million arena lease by using the $15 million a year it receives from the city to pay down debt incurred when the group purchased the team.
The Coyotes have had financial difficulties numerous times, including spending four years being run by the NHL after declaring for bankruptcy in 2009.
