    They should've had the team name and jersey ready to go, and they could've unveiled it at the draft. Would've been cool.

    Exactly. How ridiculous to have a future Winnipeg player don an NHL jersey? and what banner will flyto represent winnipeg?

    Why would they wait til the weekend ?

    "The Winnipeg Anonymous are pleased to select ..."

    Are they going up all night playing rock paper scissors to finalize the name after they are done with the draft ?

    They don't want to be booed when they unveil the name they already chose a long time ago. There will be fans at the draft.

    Then it's Jets. Like I said, announcing anything else at the draft would be met with embarassing boos.

    Or quiet confusion. I agree, tho' -- that's the first thing I thought.

    If it's the Moose, I'll be officially embarrassed on behalf of all of Canada. Why do we rush to embrace American stereotypes of ourselves?

    How is it a stereotype if they are the Moose? First of all... Moose are huge Cussing animals, and would kick the crap out of any other NHL mascot. The Jets are red, white and blue... how's that for American?

    If you don't see how Americans associate Canada with Moose, Beavers, and Canucks, I have done. Do you watch, you know, TV?

    Seems that the debate is if it will be Manitoba Jets or Winnipeg Jets.
