Blame it on Technology

via Sportsnet,
Sportsnet has learned that Sidney Crosby's linemate, Dany Roussin, is going back into the draft. Sources tell Sportsnet the Florida Panthers missed the signing deadline by three minutes this afternoon following a flurry of back and forth negotiations between Panthers GM Mike Keenan and Roussin's agent, Pat Brisson. The two sides had agreed on an entry level agreement just prior to the deadline and believed a fax delivered by Florida at 5pm (et) would register in Montreal in time. It didn't, and the NHL deemed the deal invalid, which leaves Roussin free to any team on Saturday.
