Trending Topics is a column that looks at the week in hockey, occasionally according to Twitter. If you're only going to comment to say how stupid Twitter is, why not just go have a good cry for the slow, sad death of your dear internet instead? Yesterday it was revealed that an application of site plans for an NHL-quality arena in Markham, Ontario, will likely be submitted today and could lead to permits to begin building by the fall. This news was reported on Twitter by The Hockey News editor in chief Jason Kay, and soon followed with more beefed-up details from TSN : In short, GTA Sports and Entertainment, the company submitting the plans, is going to spend $325 million to build a rink in the greater Toronto area (thus, GTA; Markham is about 19 miles from the Air Canada Centre) for reasons that are not, currently, entirely clear. The TSN report says the hope is that the rink could be completed in time to host the World Junior Championships in 2015, but if you're either GTASE or the city of Markham - which is footing half the arena bill for some bizarre reason - you don't spend $162.5 million to host World Juniors once, and then a handful of other events. Clearly, the hope is that this leads to an NHL team. And it very well should.
