Now that the Boston Bruins have taken home the Stanley Cup, the focus of the hockey world turns to the NHL Draft and July 1st free agency.

But in Winnipeg, it turns to the new NHL team's first head coach and, more importantly, to its new name and jerseys.

With the speculation that a jersey will not be ready by the draft, and the new team's having to drape an NHL jersey over their 7th overall pick, a British designer has revamped the old Jets logo, making a pitch for what it should look like if True North Sports & Entertainment were to bring back the Jets name.

Fraser Davidson, based out of London, England, designed the concept for the jerseys that were reported by the Winnipeg Free Press's Geoff Kirbyson on Thursday morning.

Could it be a shade of what is to come?  

A day earlier, on an independent website, there were full displays of two different types of jerseys, logos, and season-ticket stubs

One of the jersey designs was the one as reported by the Press.

With the week coming to an end, GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has narrowed the candidates for the head coaching position down to ex-Oiler coach Craig MacTavish, Manitoba Moose head coach Claude Noel, Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Kirk Muller, current head coach Craig Ramsay, and Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Mike Haviland.

Expect an announcement about coach, name, and possible jerseys early next week.
