Oshawa is both GTA and successful with their OHL team. I believe York could have success based on the same "regional" perspective as Niagara.

The reason why Oshawa works is because of community identity and a more wider sense of self sufficiency from bigger urban centers near them. Oshawa has been around the league for eons and are and have always been the team" in that city. Oshawa is part of Durham county and most people there don't consider themselves part of Toronto or GTA. My wife is from Pickering and it was a fairly small city when she was growing up in the 80's/90's.

York region to me us just a huge subburban extension of the city but still has a Toronto feel. I don't get that vibe in Oshawa at all. I am skeptical it would work but maybe it's worth a try to brand a York Revels team of some sort up that way.

I think thirty years ago, York was overjoyed to be Toronto's little brother and welcomed the chance to tag along. In the past ten years I have noticed a different sentiment in York, where they want their own identity.

I agree with Resonator here on not believing that Oshawa is part of the GTA. I have family in Oshawa and they do not for one second believe that they are part of the GTA.
Sorry Nicedawg but I respectfully have to disagree with you.

York and Durham are "officially" in GTA but your right my family in Aurora would never consider themselves part of Toronto in any form. I think it could work there.

Wow third overall in the league ... incredible.

I’m sure this is exactly what Dave Branch was thinking would happen when he (reluctantly) permitted a move returning a franchise here.

The city fathers and the Burke’s deserve a hearty round of applause ...

If you build it, they will in fact come ...

Bravo!
