How is that bending over backwards? It's a singular sentence that has been interpreted 2 different ways. Way #1: Hextall is saying he doesn't want to give up long-term for good players, but will for great players (ala Tavares). Way #2: HEXTALL ISN'T SPENDING MONEY ON ANYONE OTHER THAN DALE WEISE 2.0 Which one is more of a backflip, really? Note: I only sort of exaggerated Way #2. I've already seen people post similar statements.
