So he returned and the same guy told him to shoo again. So he went back home to Lasalle a second time. And then he got a third phone call ordering him to come and stay regardless of what anybody told him. So he did.
Eventually he made the NHL and was a tandem with Jacques Plante.
So the point is some of these guys like Brendan Gallagher are so tiny they might get turned back at the door. They had better watch out for that.
Cool story bro, but we are not in the 50s anymore, ain't gonna happen
