Just made sense, yet they did it anyway. Maybe that was the story you heard of, but I definitely never heard of having dinner with a scout, every story I've heard said Louie just felt something wasn't the matter.
The Stevens one what set it off was a meeting between Stevens and the blues if I am not mistaken. The reason why everyone knew Steven was going to try to go back to the Blues becuase the GM at the time said "We will find a way to get him back". As for the scout and the dinner meeting, I think it was the Sabres involved in that some how

here is the steven thing

According to wiki, the blues met with Stevens prior to the opening if RFA season. I believe the meeting was known at the time, but the NHL needed to investigate to see what was discussed at this meeting
