    I don't even know what to say. It's times like this when I appreciate being an older guy, even tho I'm still young enough that I only ever saw him play hockey in a DVD set I own. The kids today who were too young to see Gretzky or Lemieux in their primes, all they know of Beliveau is his BV.

    I was born in Montreal, I grew up a Habs fan. When I shook Jean Beliveau's hand in a autograph lineup a few years ago I was shaking hands with my Golden Age. He asked me if I liked his book and looked up at me like my answer actually mattered. He was the greatest hockey player I've ever personally met, and one of the finest gentlemen as well.

    RIP sir.

    Great player but a 100x greater person one of the few athletes that should be held to the description of a "role model "

    He will be missed

    I am only 35 and I never got the opportunity to meet him, but from all I have been able to find out, this man exemplified what a professional athlete should be:

    Honest, approachable, humble and treated you like a person. He took the time to meet you and if you wrote him, he personally answered the letter. He wrote the letter, used pen and paper, and sent it to you.

    He was true class and from clips I have seen, one of the best hockey players to ever play the game.

    May he rest peacefully forever.

    I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr. Beliveau in the summer of 2008. He was a special guest for an autograph session in Halifax. Hundreds of people came to meet him. I was so nervous to meet him but he made me feel at ease very quickly. We chatted briefly as he signed photos for myself and my grandmother, who absolutely adored him as a player with the Canadiens. He thanked me for coming to see him--imagine that! I'm over the moon to meet one of the greatest players ever, and he's thanking me. That's just such a special piece of who he was. He was truly larger than life, and the memory of that experience will last with me for a long time.

    Collecting: auto's and game used patches of Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr, Paul Coffey and other 80's Oilers. Also looking Ed Belfour autos. For all players, it doesn't matter what team they are shown with.
