Now that the NHL is back in Winnipeg and assuming that they assume the Jets name, how do they handle historical references (retired numbers, team records, etc.) between Jets I (current Phoenix Coyotes) and Jets II? Is there a precedence in North American pro sports for an organization to leave a city and a new team relocates or expands into that city and assumes the same name? Consider that when the Cleveland Browns relocated to Baltimore to become the Ravens, the transfer was officially constructed in such a way the Cleveland Browns suspended operations, the Ravens were considered an expansion team and assumed the Browns roster, and when the Browns II arenâ€™t really considered an expansion team. What about NHL franchises? How do some of the previously relocated franchises regard their previous cities? Do the Flames, Devils, Stars, Hurricanes, Coyotes, and Avalanche refer to their time in Atlanta, Kansas City/Colorado, Minnesota, Hartford, Winnipeg, and Quebec respectively? Do they have retired numbers or team records for players who never actually played in that city but were part of that organization (i.e. Colorado â€“ are there any team records or retired numbers for Quebec Nordiques?). What about teams that returned to a market? Do the Wild, Avalanche, or Sharks refer to previous teams like the North Stars, Rockies, or the Seals?
