Go Jets Go
INCREDIBLE ARTWORK BY Fraser Davidson and Brian Gundell
I can't help it feel that we are officially "down to the wire" with the whole name debate.
With this little blog, I tried to be as polite and respectful as I could...having said that, I am through messing around.
Any decision to not go with this brand is a HUGE mistake. Maybe the biggest branding mistake...ever. This work blows my mind--it is better late than never! It's so good, that I can't help it feel like we have all been had...and that actually, this work has been commissioned by our new NHL team ownership. Don't forget, we ARE partially dealing with a Multi-billionaire that appreciates Art.
"The Jets is a fine name," has been declared.
I hope this whole drawn out name game is just the biggest teaser of all time...well, the second biggest teaser of all time.
Let me put it to you in Hockey Coach Language...
"It's game 7 and Stanley Cup is on the line. We are going into the 3rd period and we are down by 3...
If anyone has the ability to make something happen out there--and I am trying to be polite as I can be by not naming names--pull your head out of wherever it may be and GET IN THE F*CKING GAME!"
P.S. In all seriousness, thank you TNSE for bringing the NHL back to Winnipeg! I am officially done discussing this topic on this blog...but on twitter? Still free game! I hope that everyone supports the team, regardless of the name. It still seems like a dream, but when the first puck is dropped, people will have no choice but to get on board!

I wonder why some franchise facts are mentioned and others are not? The great Winnipeg records are included, yet the Winnipeg Jack Adams winners are not mentioned...and the Winnipeg Captains are not mentioned? I might be uninformed on NHL/Wikipedia protocol--is it just my paranoia, or do the franchise entries ONLY mention Winnipeg Jets history when the Yotes reality is simply too unimpressive...
Bryzgalov is now gone and he was turned upon by the Phoenix establishment as fast as he could pack his bags--see Todd Walsh's speedy June 7th tweet: "...And playing the role of aloof goalie....made me ill. His team mates deserved better..." Or, have a look at Jerry Brown's words of the East Valley Tribune : "The guy who disappears into protected areas of the dressing room when he has a bad night, leaving his teammates to take the bullets and defend him."
How sad would it be for the Yotes' ONLY franchise record to be held by this disloyal, Phoenix-fleeing goaltender!?
Staying in character, the goaltender's outspoken opinion of Winnipeg has been negative and ignorant...and yet here he is, tarnishing a list of our beloved Jets: He is the sole Phoenix contribution to the record-holding history of our old franchise! Speaking of feeling "ill"....
Back in Winnipeg, we are still waiting on our new NHL team name. It has been made clear by Bill Daly that the Winnipeg Jets stats and records will stay with the franchise in Arizona. I believe that History belongs where it is made, but I understand that this would be a complicated fix for the NHL! It would be a nightmare to deal with and it would lessen the credibility of the NHL to go against their own protocol--they have done enough conceding lately, don't you think?! ;)
While TNSE can't (presently) take back the recorded history of our old franchise, they CAN legitimately right a few wrongs: Naming the team the Winnipeg Jets would be a great start! The more time that goes by, the more that Winnipeg's hockey history will be lost in Phoenix--or perhaps more likely--in the NEXT location that the franchise ends up in. Or...what happens if the league contracts? I'm not suggesting that it will...but anything seems possible these days!
A lack of foresight is what killed Winnipeg the first time around!!
Winnipeg has just won a 16-year war to get back into the NHL! They say that History is written by the victors...maybe we should take advantage of that!
Go Jets Go
P.S. I believe that all NHL fans in Winnipeg should support our new team, regardless of the name. It just won't be as much fun if it isn't the Winnipeg Jets!

Without a dog in this fight, I still want a Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup this year...but for Chrissakes Vancouver, you are making it hard to cheer for you. Luckily, Winnipeg NHL fans won't ever have this problem again...or should I say Winnipeg, Manitoba NHL fans...
Speaking of which, would ALL Canadian NHL teams go with Provincial names if Winnipeg ends up being named the 'Manitoba ________s'?
You know, Instead of Canucks, Vancouver might consider the 'B.C. Biters'...and one NHL team named the 'Alberta ________s' is bad enough...but two of them? Awful.
