Chicago is still bigger than Toronto. The city is 2.7MM while Toronto is 2.6MM. In the metro area, the difference is much bigger. Chicago is 9.5MM while GTA is 6MM.

And there were not 2MM people at the Stanley Cup parade. Everyone knows that estimate is a joke. All these crowd estimates at victory parades everywhere are propaganda. Civic pride demands an even bigger number so the police will just make one up. After Seattle won the Super Bowl, the official police estimate was 700,000. The real number was about 250,000. Impressive but people demand more. http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2022862108_seahawkscrowdxml.html

How many were in Chicago? Counting those that lined the parade route and those in Grant Park - maybe 400,000. SImple logic says no way there could be 2MM. 700,000 people work in downtown Chicago. Even maxing out mass transit and all the expressways - no way you could move another 1.3MM people downtown for a day. The media breathlessly reports those estimates but does not check them out. One or two might well after the event- but the big original number has taken root. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/sports/blackhawks-rally-crowd-estimate-96187479.html

On hits:

Los Angeles is 1st in Corsi and 1st in hits. Chicago is 2nd in Corsi and 30th in hits. Toronto is 29th in Corsi and 2nd in hits.

The argument isn't that good possession teams don't hit, it's that there's is no correlation between hitting and being a good possession team.
