The NHL can deny it but the league can’t stop the talk.

In building on the report from the Vancouver Province that the NHL would expand to Las Vegas, Howard Bloom of Sports Business News tweeted Wednesday the league will add four franchises "by 2017" in Toronto, Quebec City, Las Vegas and Seattle.

Bloom added that the NHL would take in $1.4 billion in expansion fees with the deals.

Regardless of the NHL’s denials, a possible second Toronto team has been mentioned on numerous occasions.

And fans in the Southern Ontario area would obviously crave for another NHL team.

We’re asking you for your thoughts.
