Any potential Markham arena would fit the bill for what the Conference Board of Canada describes as second team in the Toronto CMA. They obviously think there is a market for this second GTA team as well as a Hamilton team.

Of course what they think is not necessarily the same as what Bettman thinks, and he is the one calling the shots with NHL expansion, not the Conference Board of Canada.

It's also worth pointing out that Live Nation/Global Spectrum isn't just a partner in the proposed Markham arena development. They are also as an active bidder for management of Hamilton's Copps Colliseum.
