Yeah it's a huge spin to suggest that a team trading a player to one of the teams he asked to be traded to before last season is actually trying to do right by the player???  I have never suggested they would take a lessor deal but I think they would favor a similar offer from Western Canada. 
He rescinded trade request as you know but the request was always to Western Canada.  I doubt he wouldn't still want Western Canada but previous reason seems to have played itself out.  You however are perfectly ok to spin it whatever wrong way you want.

Only you could possibly think of the measured distance between two cities as "spin".

First off, you don't know what teams he asked to be traded to. You have Friedman's report and while Friedman's good, one report from him isn't a hard and cold fact. The story coming out of Hamonic's trade request was that he wanted to be closer to home. If that is the case why would he prefer Vancouver to Toronto when, and I cannot take credit for this fact, Toronto is closer to Winnipeg than Vancouver is. Just for a second put aside your stubbornness and think about things logically for once.

But secondly, why would that be the case if the trade offer and presumably the reason behind it were no longer relevant? Hamonic was not requesting a trade any more. Yeah, sure, you "knew" about that when you made your first post. Honestly, it's just bananas how desperate you seem to connect this trade to a two year old now rescinded trade request.

I can't believe you guys are arguing about this. He's in Calgary. Calgary paid an awful lot. The end.

I don't know what to tell you. "Calgary offered a better deal" should not have been a controversial statement.

Wasn't the idea there that it wouldn't just be Hamonic coming back though?

That reported offer was originally from Isles beat reporter Arthur Staple. All he said was JVR and a 2018 1st for Hamonic. Didn't mention anything else. Simmons reported the same thing but it's hard to tell if that came from his own sources or if he was just parroting what Staples wrote. I don't recall hearing about anything extra but I might have missed it.

I think we can be pretty sure it was Simmons parroting Staples, I mean its Simmons.
