Jean Beliveau has passed on. He was my idol as a young hockey player in the late 60's and early 70's.

How sad. Beliveau was my introduction to hockey in 1969, when we arrived in Vancouver and I saw my first Hockey Night in Canada game featuring Les Canadiens. I fell in love with the team right there and then, and "Le Gros Bill" was my favorite player. Beliveau, Cournoyer, Lemaire: my favorite line!

Yes he was one of the great stars... I understand that Gordie Howe is in poor health.

Just watched the live stream of his funeral; very touching, although the Halleluiah Chorus at the end as they walked out of church was a bit over the top. His coffin was draped with a Montreal Canadiens banner.

Last night there was a tribute to Beliveau at the Bell Centre in Montreal, before the Vancouver game. I didn't see it (we don't get to do that being in Atlanta) but those who saw it told me it was very well done and equally touching.
