EDIT: It would warm my heart to watch an expansion team in Toronto win the cup before the Leafs. Okay I changed my mind! I'm all for this.
A second NHL team in Toronto could easily survive. The Leafs are by no means sacred in Toronto, it would be very different to try to put a second team in Montreal. I don't see why they haven't already stuck a team in Mississauga or Etobicoke. The fans are there, the Leafs have been **** for so long that it wouldn't take much to win over the younger fan base and a lot of the high income earners are out of towners who would most likely love having an alternative to the Leafs and their ridiculous prices.
