Approved or not, after this conversation Gauthier had to reveal the team he was dealing with, lest be shown to be a larger a-hole than he already proven to be. You can't pretend the conversation didn't occur once it has.
A simple conversation about maintaining confidentiaity should have occurred and Gill apprised of his destination. He didn't need to know the identities of the Nashville players involved, he did deserve to know he was going to Nashville.
But these are management basics, something knucklehead hasn't yet mastered. He doesn't trust Gill to keep his mouth shut for 45 minutes. That's deplorable.
Spacek said that PG didn't want to tell him where he was traded to until it was official because of respect to the other GM, ex so Rutherford would let Kaberle first instead of possible it been leaked out. time and time again players and their agents have found out they got traded thru the media before their GM, PG is simply given them a heads up before the deal is official and he is probably only doing that because with trades media are so connected we find out the deals before they are even complete.
