So I guess if this is a brand new Wings team

    Then banners and the past accomplishments are gone and never to be mentioned again?

    My guess is all new banners. Just two, one for titles, one for retired numbers.

    No. It's like a Charlotte Hornets and Cleveland Browns situation. They'll get their history back even though it's not technically the same franchise.

    Only saying because the announcement of the GM and Coach specifically says " Coach Day is excited to bring back the winning mentality in Philadelphia. Coach gives us insights on his expectations for the Wings brand and what this new franchise means to the fans."

    AND also says

    Welcome the first GM and Head Coach of the Philadelphia Wings"

    Doesn't say returning franchise or any mention of the past anywhere.

    I thought French returned the banners.

    I've emailed both the league and the Wings about this and never heard back from either. I remember when the Wings left there was talk that the history was staying in Philadelphia, yet the Black Wolves included Wings statistics in the league's media guide.

    How stupid would it be to have Jake attending Wings Games, but the franchise not being able to retire his number? Or Hollywood to come to a game and not see his banner?

    I do not know about in the arena but on line it looks like New England lays claim to the titles and player records. Do they have championship banners? Have any of the retired numbers been used?

    This is actually quite interesting how this will play out. There is no "Philadelphia Wings" without mentioned the past accomplishments of the teams, players and coaches.

    I believe Lincoln wore Marecheck’s 42.

    Correct. Evan Kirk also wore #35 last season.

    Again, I think it's a Charlotte Hornets/Cleveland Browns situation. I believe they laid claim to anything when they originally moved to Baltimore and New Orleans (which wasn't much of anything), but the history went back to the original teams when Browns v2 and Hornets v2 returned.

    FWIW, the Bwolves do list the Wings statistics (as the Wings) from all the NLL years, kn their web pages, statistics drop down.

    Or for hollywood's number to be hanging in New England. Hopefully they didn't botch this.

    THE ARDMORE AARDVARK DOESN'T NEED THIS BUSH LEAGUE TO RECOGNIZE THIS WINGS SQUAD AS A CONTINUATION OF THE OLD WINGS, BECAUSE THESE WINGS WILL ALWAYS BE THE OLD WINGS IN MY HEART.

    There is a playoff preview on the NLL page. Click on the East preview, and they have a rundown for each team. The list a category: Championships.. under Blackwolves, it says None.
