Haha, the situation and events are rather amusing on their own, but this is VERY amusing if this is a calculated troll on MG's part.
Gillis can't be that much of a Dufus, this is MoneyPuck we are talking about. If this is the case he is just making himself look like an ass amongst the GM Fraternity. They all talk pretty much on a daily basis. "Hey George, it's Dale Tallon here, what is Mike and Lawrence doing there?" George - "I have no fucking idea, got nothing in the works with them"?
HW is just miffed she hasn't gotten any real inside juicy gossip for a long time now.
I am not a fan of Gillis but I do think he is personally scouting for a reason other than what you say - "Mind Fracking"? If that was the case, can we please organize a mutiny and remove the jackass mind fracker from the GM chair.
