See, I don't get this argument. All they need to do is make a new version of a Winnipeg Jets jersey and, so long as they don't fuck it up, people will buy it. New players, new jersey's, plus all the retro stuff.. I really don't see the problem with taking the Jets name.
The only argument that I've heard that makes sense is that the true Jets, their history and records, are all in Phoenix under another name. This new "Jets" wouldn't have that and not entitled to it because it is a different team. They aren't the team of Roenick, Tkachuk or Selanne. In this case, I wouldn't be opposed to the Manitoba Jets, similar colour scheme and a new jersey. That way you connect with the old Jets fans but are a new team to draw new fans and revenue.
But then, no one asks my opinion on anything these days...
