Does Toronto need another NHL team?
Fri, June 5, 2009

By TERRY KOSHAN, SUN MEDIA

A Toronto group wants to leave its Legacy with the National Hockey League.

Calling it a pie-in-the-sky idea might be a safer bet.

Andrew Lopez, creator of the Toronto Legacy Group, unveiled an ambitious NHL expansion team plan today at a downtown restaurant, one that would be called the Toronto Legacy, play in a proposed 30,000-seat arena at Downsview Park and give 25% of its annual net profits to charities across Canada.

Half of the tickets in the rink, which is part of a plan that would include an Olympic swimming pool, office towers and a hotel, would be sold for no more than $50 a game.

Lopez said the group already has lined up $1 billion in financing.

Do you think this bid, or any other bid, could bring a second NHL team to Toronto? Does the Greater Toronto Area need another team? Have your say in our forum.

Another team in T.O.?

Boy-o-boy... with a headline like that, the jokes just write themselves, don't they? Should Toronto get a 2nd NHL team? No, they should a first NHL team.

Sure, why not have another team in Toronto? That way, they could spread the wealth of talent they already have around a little!

With the Leafs and the Marlies Toronto has two AHL teams already.. Centre of the universe could use something to get excited about.

Could somebody please explain to me, why a team in Hamilton is such a BAD idea and a second team in T.O. is a good one?

And while we are on the subject, last time I checked. Winterpeg is still looking for an other chance at a team, and I suspect that Quebec City might like another bite out of that apple.

So it comes down to this.

Why does Gary (Little Man) Bettman HATE Canadian Hockey so much?

Yes, Toronto should have a team -why should the largest city in Canada not have a real team!
