We're being trolled. They won't announce the name until October 5th. ROFL

Seriously, though, I hope it is the the unveiling of the brand. I thought it was hard waiting for a team to unveil a third jersey. Waiting for a team to unveil their name is excruciating.

Just for confirmation have they already committed to using an NHL practice sweater for the draft or is their potential that they'll have a jersey ready?

I don't recall any of the Winnipeg brass being 100% definite on it. There were a lot of "may" and "might"'s. I was just watching Sportscentre and the draft board has Winnipeg with an NHL crest for a logo. If that changes before the draft I'll be a happy camper, if not, more waiting and speculating - yay!

That's going to be a coach announcement, I doubt they'd name the team on the day of the draft.

Gino Redda was interviewing chevy on TSN last night and I believe chevy said they will be able to address the coaching position today at the press conference

Be nice if they were to announce the team name & jersey and place it on their pick.

Definitely think it's for the head coach announcement. I think there is a chance they announce the name at the 11am press conference, but, I also have a feeling they'll hold off until they're at the podium tonight, and announce the name as they select their pick.

Either or, in my opinion if the tweets by Darren Dreger, among others, were correct in that the team will likely announce the name this weekend, I see absolutely no logical reason why it wouldn't be done today at some point as we head into the draft. If you have the name, which they do I am sure, why would they not release it today/when they select their first ever pick, rather than do it over the weekend.

It only makes sense to me for them to announce it today.

I suppose it would create more drama to announce it right when their pick is made.

Solid tv.

Ya, I think if they don't announce it at the 11am press conference, then the announcement will come at the draft podium. Either or, I see it being today.

But, with that being said, if it was announced as they selected their pick, it may take away from the spotlight of the young man being drafted. It won't from a tv perspective because the focus of the program is on the draftees, but, perhaps from a fans and media perspective? Maybe not.. i'm just kind of thinking out loud here.

I rather hope they're announcing the name and colours at the presser and not at the draft. While it's a dramatic moment to make the presentation, it kind of hijacks the evening from the league, not to mention taking the attention off of the kid picked seventh and onto what jersey he puts on. These kids earned the right to some recognition, and they shouldn't have to compete with such an announcement.

Thanks to Illegal Curve for sharing the many stories and links it todays daily papers, here is one that'll likely make most feel pretty good.

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/spo...124478724.html

Quote:
Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero told the Columbus Dispatch that Noel would have been on his short list to replace Dan Bylsma had Bylsma not worked out as Pittsburgh's interim coach in 2009.

"Claude is smart, competitive and communicates well with players," Shero told the newspaper. "He's also very good at changing things tactically during a game."

The biggest complaint I had with Craig Ramsay. Excellent teacher but completely inept at adjusting during the game.

I kind of agree. I am excited to see what the team will be called though. I've been calling them the Winnipeg Whatevers lol.

Winnipeg expected to announce name at draft

Per Darren Dreger;

Wpg expected to announce the name of its team just prior to making the 7th selection overall. Unconfirmed as to what the name will be. #TSN

I changed the name of the stickied thread that was being used for Head Coach announcement/Team name... all of the head coaching talk was taking place there, so it's probably a good idea to keep it there and continue using that thread for when the announcement takes place this morning. For those who may not know, it's this thread and it's stickied: Claude Noel to be named Head Coach today. Press Conference at 11:00am

With that being said, can we place bets on how many new threads we have at the 11am presser when they announce Noel as head coach? I'm going with 7 new threads... in 30 seconds to 1 minutes time.

I don't know which thread we should use for the team name, now we've got 3. Oh the madness... ... ...

Announcement by TNSE today @ 11:00am

TNSE has no option but to call team Winnipeg Jets (The Name Thread)

Yeah, looks like it. I'm betting it's just the coach announcement. We'll probably not know the name until 2014 or something. At least, it feels that way!
