Published September 15, 1997
The Flames, Oilers and Canadiens are the only three NHL teams without an official Web site, according to Mitch Garber of the Montreal GAZETTE. Garber: "Did you know you could sell more Canadiens merchandise off the Internet than you will ever sell out of the Molson Centre store?" While the NHL's web site at www.nhl.com "is doing a good job," the league is planning a "total graphic and content relaunch" on October 1, making the new site "easier to navigate and more fan-friendly" (Montreal GAZETTE, 9/14). ONLINE NOTES: The A-10 has launched www.atlantic10.org (Atlantic 10)....Packers.com, the team's official site, has surpassed the 10 million hit mark less than two months after it was launched (Packers.com)....ABC Sports Online has launched a new "Monday Night Football" site at www.abcmnf. com. The site features "real time" displays with data coming directly from ABC Sports' control room (ABC).
