Winnipeg Jets – Update 3


I am starting to see the quandary that True North is going to have in naming the team the Jets.  Don’t get me wrong, Jets is the only acceptable name for the team, yet there are problems.  The main one is history.  The Jets and their history moved to Phoenix.  The Thrashers and their history are moving to Winnipeg.  Ladd wears number 9, obviously Bobby Hull wore 9 and the Jets retired that number, which hangs from the rafters in Phoenix.  Will Ladd want to wear a different number?  The Thrashers never retired 9.  Is it fair to him to make him wear a different number?  Is it fair to the fans not to make him?

The link sheds more light and commentary on the issue.
