As we've already heard the news, the Thrashers (NOT the Coyotes) are moving to Winni. That's said and done.

NOW the only question is, what will the name of the team be? The classic Winnipeg Jets (which are the current Phoenix Coyotes)? Or, the Manitoba Moose?

Personally, I'd like for the team to take back the Jets name. I mean, the least Phoenix can do is just give the city back its original brand. Manitoba Moose sounds like (and is) a minor league team... or some cheap brand of Canadian beer.

The Manitoba Moose is the Canuck's farm team...They have been moving players, particularly defensemen up and down all season, and there hasn't been a dud among them....Is say Jets should be the name.

I don't think there is any cheap Canadian beer...Not compared to the cost of beer in the US anyway....Way too much "sin" tax on it here.

Ah come on, think of the headlines if they were to be called the Moose. The Moose Are Loose!! And Dustin Byfuglien is coming with! (From just down the road, in Roseau, Minnesota.)

But moose. Moose are much cooler than Jets. Manitoba I could do without, but then Winnipeg isn't great either. They should have moved them to SASKATOON.
