People are always claiming that the old jerseys belong to the Coyotes (they don't).. but remember, the NHL Winnipeg Jets were an expansion team, and their original logo was very similar to the WHA Jets.. but THEY WERE NOT THE SAME TEAM. Just like this Winnipeg Jets team is not the same as the one that played here in the 80's and 90's. Therefore, by using the WHA team logo, they're essentially bypassing the whole "That logo belongs to a different team that's still playing in Phoenix" arguement for the time being. Plus it's more classic than the other Jets logos.

In summary, the WHA records of the original Winnipeg Jets do not belong to the Phoenix Coyotes, they belong to the history of the city of Winnipeg. As such, the jerseys do too.
