News has hit this morning here in Toronto that this great city -- even with the sorry Maple Leafs -- might be getting a new NHL (National Hockey League) franchise. My reaction upon hearing the news was a mighty "yes!".
The bumbling league wants to expand with four more teams... like in Las Vegas; makes total sense to me!
A new Toronto team does not mean necessarily that it will be within the city boundaries; it could be Hamilton, or Markham (just outside the city proper). My pick would be for the former, although I would like to see it in Toronto's "Downsview" neighbourhood -- there is a subway line to that location, which means we could have a "Subway Series" should both teams meet up in the playoff... wait a minute, how could that happen?
The Toronto Maple Leafs meet the Toronto Authentics?....
