Or maybe it's a double smokescreen (smog).

Every GM has a list of the invitees to the other teams' combines. So that part is no secret. Every GM or head scout knows no one tips their hand.

Maybe TT figures the only way to pull attention off Liam McCoughlin is to declare that he is a sleeper and all the other GMs & head scouts will think like Whitesnake, "Aw forget it Trevie is trying to pull a fast one."

Or

If no one knows about him as of today and he has not been invited to any combines except for the Habs, I don't think he'll be invited to a combine at the last second just because of what Trevor said to a reporter. In other words other teams already know this kid or they don't and couldn't be bothered.
