09:41 AM ET 08.25 | Sure is sounding like it's all over for a Markham Arena and by extension the supposed dream of a second Toronto NHL team. Still think, Toronto could and should have two NHL teams, and you can play both of them out of the Air Canada Centre, in a manner similar to the Lakers and Clippers sharing an NBA arena. The second arena isn't necessary.

I didn't know they had a first one :)

That would be perfect for the CBC.

HNIC would feature To***to vs To***to every freakin' Saturday night.

Nice to see you GM and I like your style. There's been entirely far too much Leaf love on these threads lately. :-)

It wouldn't be fair to give a second franchise to Toronto when potential hockey markets in San Juan and Honolulu go without.

Because I have never paid currency from my wallet for Leaf tickets. I'm delusional, but i'm not crazy.

The second arena isn't necessary. Already on the cheap:)

Nice check by the ref at 2:45 and too bad no one threw a rubber duck on the ice when they were shooting off those guns:)

Now now.....I gotta say this debate has been on for years. They can do it, but won't for probably a million reasons that don't make sense.

I just want the team that is currently there to do even better this season! Yearly wish.....

That rendering of Markham Arena looks more like a bowl of melting vanilla ice cream.
