Surely Mr. Balsillie isn't stupid enough to spend upwards of $200 million on a team, and the same amount on building a stadium somewhere where there isn't a plan to bring higher order transit (LRT), continuous all-day GO Transit service, nearby downtown amenities (e.g. bars & shopping areas), existing pro sports franchise(s) and a city that's recognized as a major part of the region.

He definitely doesn't want to make the same mistake as the Coyotes made in moving to Glendale.

Aside from downtown Hamilton, there is really nowhere else in the region where such a plan realistically makes sense. Copps is the home for the new team, the Hamilton Coyotes. It certainly won't be Burlington or Vaughan. Kitchener-Waterloo may be feasible, but much longer term.
