I wouldn't worry about less players wanting to come here b/c Vancouver was in the NBA, in fact more players would rather go to Seattle then go to either Vancouver or Toronto. And i don't think viewship would take a hit. IMO Toronto is on the right path to succeed in the near future. I just think that Vancouver was a disaster the first time and it only took all of 5yrs before the rumblings of them moving started coming up.
