Two key differences here.

Floating things through national media (TSN) and answering questions in local media (Vancouver Sun) are completely different things.

I also find it slightly ironic, but I don't think these two cases are comparable, considering Toronto based media have taken a story in which they have very little relation (other than hoping the team they cover more gets a star player for cheap) and a Vancouver based reporter, asking a mulititudes of questions ranging from pro scouting to drafting, not just on a goalie trade.

Who knows, maybe Gillis answered like that, because he knew Toronto based media would jump all over it? I doubt it, but I guess its plausible.
