    Are they supposed to announce the team name today as well or just the fact that there's going to be a team. I think it would be a terrible move not to call them the Jets IMO. It's a brand name... it's like if Coke went out of business and someone bought the recipe and called it something else....wrong.

    no not wrong, what great history is associated with the Jets? The one that left? Time for something new.

    It's true that their history wasn't the greatest in terms of success, but they had many memorable players and moments (Bobby Hull, Teemu Selanne, etc). If they were to change the name now it would have to be built from ground up which could be very hard to do if they aren't winners in their first few seasons. The Jets name is already a name which has brand recognition(people are already attached to it).IMO it would be a huge mistake in the long run to change it. Of course if this team won a cup in it's first few years under a new name the Jets would be forgotten pretty quickly. The real question, however, is what if they don't?

    We won't know today
    @EJHradek_NHL: For those asking, I hear that it's unlikely that they'll be any announcement today about the team name (Jets, Moose, etc) in Winnipeg

    A better question would be, would this forum revive?
    Feeling left out in society? Are you that kid? The Bruins forum can help you.

    My buddy said a lot of people who want the Jets name back (which for the record is probably not happening) would be content with the Golden Jets (based on the golden boy obvs)

    The Winnipeg Golden Jets has a nice ring to it, or even the Manitoba Golden Jets.

    The last I heard is that the rights to the "Jets" name was sold along with the team when they moved to Phoenix

    Wrong, the league owns the name and is willing to give True North the name for free.

    I don't like the name Manitoba associated with the name. Atleast when Winnipeg goes to New York for instance, fans there will somewhat vaguely know of where Winnipeg is. With the name Manitoba, Americans won't have a clue.
