The Jets moved to Phoenix, which to me means that they still own the rights to the name. Since the NHL currently owns Phoenix, I could see them selling the rights to the name for a few mill to whoever is buying the team. It makes sense really. The NHL gets some money to pay for the Yotes and Winnipeg gets the Jets back and doesn't have to stick with the Thrashers or some other team name.
