    Seems the CBC is confirming that the name will be the Winnipeg Jets.

    Apparently it wasn't their original choice, it was going to be Manitoba "___________________". But with the season ticket sales and pretty much everyone wanting the name Jets they decided (wisely) to listen to their fans (and ticket holders).

    It was probably Manitoba Whiteout, I bet they leaked it to see the response.

    Best move the Winnipeg franchise has made yet. They'll make a bundle on Jersey sales now.

    They need to sell Jerseys. They might have a 3rd heritage jersey with a throwback to the classic one.

    That would be good... keep the name, sell more "new" jerseys... everyone is happy.

    Rumour: Nickelback to perform at Jets home opener - http://spectorshockey.net/wordpress/2011/08/29/latest-jets-news-august-29-2011/

    P.S. I think the Thrashers forum needs to be edited to Winnipeg Jets.

    I think the Guess Who would be better IMHO, being that they're from the Peg.

    One of the best bills I ever saw: Guess Who w/ Wide Mouth Mason. Nickelback is a pretty big deal so it's a nice touch.

    I think Nickelback packs a little more rock, which means more energy for the crowd. Crunchy guitar riffs and loud drums and bass.

    Ondrej Pavelec has been charged with DUI in his native Czech Republic. His blood-alcohol level was registered at 0.2%
