No Sim for you

Every once in a while, an e-mail system has a mind of its own...

Jon Sim, Isles don't have deal
Associated Press

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders sent out a press release Tuesday night saying that they had re-signed forward Jon Sim. The only problem was that the signing happened last summer.

On Wednesday, the Islanders said that their AHL
affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, had experienced an email glitch
and had mistakenly sent out the press release. The Islanders had not
re-signed Sim.

Sim had one goal and three assists in 34 games last season for the
Islanders. He had 22 points (13 goals, nine assists) in 77 games in the
2009-10 season.
He was a third-round selection of the Dallas Stars in the 1996 draft.>>
