Vaughan>Markham all day

the new team would have to pay the Leafs an upfront fee. I forgot the exact total but it was in the tens of millions. There was also a fee that Buffalo would collect if there was a team in Hamilton.

the cost is estimated to be $325 ml for the stadium. no way it will be that cheap. you can't build pro arenas for less that $500 mil these days.

just comes down to which city wants to fund an arena. people in Hamilton don't want to spend money on Copps Coliseum.
