ONLINE NEWS & NOTES: NHL.COM TO RELAUNCH OCTOBER 1
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).
