I agree that they shouldn't mess with it. Winnipeg wanted their team back and now they got it. So obviously they should be called the "Jets".

Wow! Atlanta has proven twice over that they won't support a hockey team and you blame Bettman? Classic!!!

All the season tickets in Winnipeg sold out within ten minutes...Sounds like they have a solid home now.

I agree Bettman is a douche but what makes you think they won't last long here?

As for the team name. I'd love to see them go with the Jets but I have a feeling they won't. Some of the names I've heard thrown around are Polar bears, Monarchs, Falcons, Mosquitoes, Blizzard.

This means nothing. When a new team or a returning team comes in, you can never tell by the first year or two. After that, it tells the story. I do hope it works out though because I always had a soft spot for the Jets especially when Selanne was there.

So does Winnipeg replace Buffalo or Columbus as the place players least want to live? Kind of the NHL purgatory. Like in the NFL if you POd management you got traded to Buffalo.

Have you been there? Great hockey town, close to the border. Kids love that sport there.

There's no way they'll be called anything but Winnipeg Jets unless the city does not have rights to the name.
