The return of hockey also means the return of podcasts dedicated to this wonderful sport, which means it's back to school for the guys from "La Poche Bleue". Maxim Lapierre and Guillaume Latendresse are on fire, as they recorded (live) the 2nd show of season 3... Already three seasons for the podcast of the two former Montreal Canadiens players.

While listening, Cedric Paquette dropped a very funny anecdote about Alex Galchenyuk and himself, who played together for a brief time with the Ottawa Senators. When Paquette and Chucky were sent to Carolina, the two boys returned with the Sens to Toronto. To get back to Ottawa, they rented a car and drove through a storm.

Once in Ottawa, the goal for the newest member of the Canadiens was to leave for Carolina the next day, again by car. Galchenyuk, like a good guy, indicated that he could accompany him for the ride so it wouldn't be so "flat". The problem? Don Waddell had told Paquette that Galchenyuk was going to go through the ballot the day after he was acquired and that he had to stay in Ottawa. Let's just say that Paquette was sweating when Galchenyuk offered him that... What can I say to him? Hahaha!

In the end, Chucky was sent from the Hurricanes to the Maple Leafs 48 hours later in return for David Warsofsky and Egor Korshkov. A nice little funny story, isn't it?
