Here is the real explanation by team personnel: Columbus Blue Jackets:Yellow jackets are industrious and team oriented, which should strike fear into the hearts of our opponents, but we wanted to use blue jackets because Ohio had more soldiers in the Civil War than any other state, and some people call soldiers "blue jackets" (though not many), and after all two of the new NHL teams are in the south, and we want to emphasize we aren't naming this after the Indian Blue Jacket because that's not politically correct, although we decided to spell it like the Indian since bluejacket should be one word like yellowjacket.
