    Good news. I'm not much of a hockey fan, but it's nice to see the return of an old WHA team. Hopefully these two will be next:

    Will they be the Winnepeg Jets, or will they be the Winnepeg Thrashers?

    Would any returning hockey team be automatically called the Jets, or is there outside trademark issues or NHL pressure to "make a fresh start" that might prevent this?

    Nothing is automatic. The NHL owns the trademark. It would be up to the NHL and the ownership group to come to an agreement. If you look at the Coyotes situation, both potential local ownership groups have stated in their Memorandum of Understanding letters that they would change the name of the team.
    "No, no. The league owns those. Remember, we did not have proprietary interest in the hockey team. We held it for the people of Winnipeg. If a team comes back to Winnipeg, it will be up to whoever brings a team back to decide on the name."

    Didn't it used to the the AHL's Hartford Wolfpack, now called the Whale, and they still play in Hartford, yes?

    Even though I was an Islanders fan back in the day, I'll never forget going to a Rangers-Jets game at the garden back in the 80's in which Winnipeg was winning handily. The Garden crowd started a J-E-T-S chant which had me dying!
