National Post: Sean Fitzgerald reports Chris Simon was the last to leave the ice at Air Canada Center today while Ted Nolan had his media conference so Simon could avoid the Canadian media?

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Article had no problem quoting Simon from the other day, however.

Salt Lake Tribune:Maggie Thach had an updated on Grizzlies prospect Jordan Hart, son of former Islander Gerry Hart who was featured several time in the summer at prospects camp.

Globe and Mail: Rick Wharnsby reports Islanders had a change of heart in making available suspended forward Chris Simon to conduct an interview session with reporters at the Air Canada Centre on Thursday morning. Mr Wharnsby claim's other than a shrug of his shoulders by the Islanders media relations man here, there was no explanation given for Simon being kept hidden in the back room of the dressing room after the morning skate.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Again article had Simon's quotes from Wednesday.

Islanders website: Now reports in it's updated pregame Brendan Witt is out two-four weeks.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
That folks, could be the end considering the remaining depth on defense.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabio blogged from Sound Tigers practice.

Newsday: If Newsday updates it's Islander blog it usually appears around 5:30pm for those interested. Of course Mr Zipay is blogging on Ranger off-days.

Point Blank: Chris Botta did a blog last night about the league claiming the Isles did not properly disclose an injury to Bruno Gervais and explains the process as to how this is supposed to work.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Did not know there were set rules on this. Considering teams release lower or upper body injury all the time and are protective as possible I'm not sure where a mistake was made here or I'm not reading it properly.

I'm not even sure Gervais could perhaps return tonight.
