More About Winnipeg Jets Jerseys

The Winnipeg Jets franchise, much like the Hartford Whalers, sprung into existence with the arrival of the NHL rival, WHA (World Hockey Association). At the end of 1971 the city of Winnipeg was granted one of the inaugural franchises, and owner Ben Hatskin dubbed the team the Jets, after the Western Canada Hockey League franchise of the same name.

Though the first official Winnipeg Jet was Norm Beaudin, it was the signing of NHL superstar Bobby Hull that put the Winnipeg Jets (and the WHA itself) on the map. Hull signed for the princely sum of one million dollars, and the arrival of "The Golden Jet" immediately gave the NHL's rival league legitimacy. However, the Jets weren't satisfied with plumbing the NHL for talent. They also set their sights overseas, bring in a pair of talented Swedes in Anders Hedberg and Ulf Nilsson. The two starred alongside Bobby Hull and formed "The Hot Line", the most prolific line in WHA history.

The Winnipeg Jets were the class of the WHA during the league's relatively short existence, winning the Avco World Cup on three separate occasions between 1976 and 1979, led by The Hot Line, and other stars like Kent Nilsson, Morris Lukowich, Peter Sullivan, Willy Lidstrom, and goaltender Joe Daley.

When the WHA merged with the NHL prior to the 1979-80 season, the powerful Jets were a no-brainer as one of the surviving franchises, and it was hoped they could immediately be competitive. Alas, much like their brethren from Hartford, such was not to be the case.

Winnipegs Jets in the NHL

A reclamation draft following their entry into the NHL decimated the Jets' roster, and in their first couple of seasons in the league they finished in last place out of 21 teams. Of course, as we've seen throughout league history with teams like the Pittsburgh Penguins, Washington Capitals and Chicago Blackhawks, finishing at or near the bottom of the league standings does allow a team to get some high draft picks, and, if spent wisely, those picks should yield high quality players. Such was the case in the 1981 draft when the Jets selected a future superstar in Dale Hawerchuk. Hawerchuk's arrival would coincide with a 48 point improvement in a single season, and immediately turned the Jets from the joke of the league into a formidable opponent.

However, the Jets streak of bad luck continued. They had the misfortune to play in the same division as the powerful Edmonton Oilers, and the almost equally daunting Calgary Flames. As a result, despite enjoying decent regular season success the franchise was never able to progress very far in the post-season. In fact, in every one of the Oilers' five Stanley Cup championships the Northern Alberta powerhouse dispatched the Jets somewhere along the way.

Despite never seeing their team achieve post-season success Jets fans did get to see some pretty talented players take the ice for their team. Thomas Steen, Randy Carlyle and Dave Babych, and of course, Hawerchuk, were all dominant players during much of the 80s. The 90s saw the arrival of more stars, including Finnish Flash Teemu Selanne, who set NHL rookie records in his first year with 76 goals and 132 points. Keith Tkachuk, Alexei Zhamnov and Nikolai Khabibulin also starred for the team during that era.

Despite enjoying some of the NHL's most passionate fans, and though they had some of the game's best young talent on their roster, the Jets' time in Winnipeg was ultimately ended because of simple economic realities. With a weak Canadian dollar, and an arena not well suited to corporate sponsorship the Jets could no longer afford to pay the salaries that the league's premier talent commanded. Eventually those problems would spiral until the club was forced to relocate to the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona, leaving thousands of devastated fans in their wake.

However, all may not be lost for Jets' fans. In recent years the Coyotes have endured their own financial woes, and should economics force them to move Winnipeg would be a likely destination. Should that occur it would certainly be one of the most ironic occurrences in the history of sports. Even should the Coyotes manage to recover from their financial woes Winnipeg still stands a decent chance at getting a franchise again. With a much stronger Canadian dollar, a proper building in place, and a hungry fan base, Winnipeg would be high on the list should the NHL expand once again.

In the meantime fans can continue to deck themselves out in Winnipeg Jets jerseys and wish for the day their beloved club returns.
