The great divide between the Labatt Avalon East Senior Hockey League and the Bud Light West Coast Senior Hockey League stretches beyond the Trans Canada Highway all the way to the information super-highway. Over at www.westcoasthockey.ca, Gary Gale and the guys have really outdone themselves by putting together a well designed and sharp looking website. Only launched a few weeks ago, and still under construction in some sections, the site looks to be modeled loosely anyhow around the Co-operators St. Johns Junior Hockey Leagues website. It offers readers/viewers countless little perks the Avalon Easts site doesnt such as information about ticket prices, directions to the arenas through Google maps, and mailing information for each of the teams. It doesnt end there. The site has photo galleries, reader polls and the option to sign up for an league newsletter delivered to your inbox. Overall, its just a cleaner, better organized website that jumps off the screen. The Avalon Easts site, meanwhile, looks as though its developed and maintained by a Compu College flunk out. The site is rife with errors and broken links as though its under a permanent state of construction. Now, to be fair, there are some things on www.aeshl.com the West doesnt have, such as a great all-time records database and links to youtube.com videos from league games. Maybe Joe Maynard and the rest of the AESHL executive will take notice and get themselves a proper website in time for next season.
