For all those who believed that Jim Balsillie was the only one interested in bringing another team to the province of Ontario, you are wrong!
According to Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star, there will be a press conference in Toronto tomorrow where a group of three people will announce plans to bring another NHL franchise to the province.
Included in this group is Herb Carnegie. Carnegie is an 89 year old Order of Canada recipient, described in his biography on the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame web site as "one of the best ever players to never play pro-league hockey."

According to McGran sources this group would have $1 billion dollars to spend on bringing an expansion team to Toronto.
Now, they are not asking the government for any money and they will unveil how the team will honour "Canadian heroes while supporting cancer research, national scholarships and children's charities."
How the hell will the NHL say no to cancer research, children charity, and scholarship?
This should be exciting as they will also announce the team name, logo, jersey, and arena.
How about that folks?
