Does anyone know what happened to it? It was one of my top 5 sites that I liked to visit. Where did it go and why? :cry:

I get this (http://www.canada.com/sports/hockey/) hideous site when I click on my favs.

In no way does this site even remotely compare to the great faceoff.com site. The teams' boards don't even seem to be working or maybe it's just the Canucks one that isn't.

Does anyone know of some other good hockey sites where they have daily articles written about all the teams? Perhaps one that compares to faceoff.com

Faceoff.com couldn't stay afloat and was bought out by Canada.com (owned by Izzy Asper & co.) over the summer. They instantly turned it into a total piece of sh** site that's utterly useless. :madfire: It's a real shame.

As an aside, apparently canada.com is going to start charging for their content (http://www.thestar.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=thestar/Layout/Article_Type1&call_pageid=971358637177&c=Article&cid=1063923014974) soon as well, which is laughable given what an absolute cesspool their entire site is.

I have yet to find a site that has as much good, up-to-date information as faceoff.com did. :(

Faceoff was a very good site too bad it's gone.

I miss it too.

This is the best I have found for Canuck news and articles from the major Vancouver papers for us who don't live there and can't subscibe.

I loved it...too bad it has been taken over by Canada.com and transformed into nothing

http://www.canada.com/vancouver/sports/teams/canucks/index.htmlThat IS a good site; I'll definitely bookmark that one along with some of the others.

canada.com's last update on the 'Nucks was the Magnus acquisition. How many WEEKS ago was that? Very pathetic indeed and they actually would have the nerve to charge for two-week-old news? Right... your cheque is in the mail. :rolleyes:

Okay, right click and delete here we go... *flush*

Faceoff.com went off the net after the Devils won the cup in early June and merged into Canada.com which is a shame because Faceoff.com was the best.

Uh, it was earlier than that.
