    Watching HNIC during Game 7, they mentioned Winnipeg might be officially "named" on Tuesday?

    Then mentioned something about they didn't wanna mention the name till they had merchandise in place, as they didn't want any "knock offs" hitting the streets before they could get the official stuff in place

    Does that suggest Winnipeg will be called the Jets?

    I ask because how would you make knock offs if they were calling them something else with a previously unknown name/logo??

    Be good if they were the jets i'd love a jets jersey

    Needing merchandise in place before announcing a name would imply that it would NOT be the Jets IMO.

    I thought they announced that they were going to go with a generic-NHL-shield jersey for the Entry Draft, which seemed to imply no name by that point.

    Well, since the NHL owns the rights to the Jets name, I am sure it is possible for them to sell it off to the new owners. I don't think they would use it though.

    It could also imply it will be the Jets but with a new logo and possibly new color scheme. That might be the "best of both worlds" approach - the fans get the name but still have to buy new stuff.

    You could name the team the Winnipeg Career-Ending Knee Injuries, and people will rush out to buy anything with those words on it. I could go to the mall and have a hundred shirts made up - no logo, just those words - and sell them for $25 each. And people would buy them because TNSE hasn't released any merchandise yet, so people have no other option at this point.

    okay
    the announcement could be tuesday afternoon (after the BoG meeting) or most likely wednesday sometime

    True North has also said that they wont have a jersey for the draft.
    I call b.s. on this but you never know

    These guys have been organized from the very beinging... hard to beleive they wont have anything ready... i still say they will show a jersey at the draft

    I think they're trying to finalize details with these guys to use the logo and name.

    I'd love to see this. The Winnipeg Jets, but with the Manitoba Moose colour scheme. The league needs more green!

    From an inside "source" I have, he is convinced the team is going to still be called the Jets but with a new logo. He even showed me a picture of the alleged new logo and it looks fantastic. He said the team plans on releasing the jersey at the draft, with Cheveldayoff making the announcement.

    They won't be naming the team after the State Bird of Georgia.

    Does your 'source' have any knowledge on the Winnipeg versus Manitoba matter?

    This is how i see it....

    Young people like you feel the need to call them the Jets because you never experienced them....

    However people like me who are old enough to remember how terrible most of those Jets teams really were... That name is associated with failure....

    I would rather them not be called the Jets... but at the end of the day it isnt my decision.
