Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Alan Adams at Sportsnet.ca,
News item: NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman isn’t sure a second franchise in Southern Ontario is a good idea.
“Frankly, I live in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area and it’s tough for all the clubs to get media attention, particularly when they’re having tough years on the ice. There’s some real downside to having multiple teams in one market,” Bettman said Monday in his state-of-the-union address.
My spin: Is Gary Bettman that afraid of the Toronto Maple Leafs? Do the Leafs have that much power that they can veto a second team coming to Southern Ontario?
