It's a compare and contrast article which is very flattering to Beliveau, and given that the medical prognosis is good for him, entirely appropriate.

Seems like old biases in play based on some old articles written about the team's sacred cow.
"It’s also the lack of class in the way general manager Pierre Gauthier deals with the world that has to be addressed. In so many ways, Gauthier is the anti-Béliveau. Béliveau treats everyone with respect; Gauthier treats everyone with contempt."

That's about as personal as it gets. And again... he shouldn't be invoking the name of Beliveau here to grind an axe. It's one thing to do something like this on a message board, but Todd is a newspaper writer. He's supposed to be a journalist. Instead, he's an embarassment.
