I don't really have a horse in this race, but that seems a bit far-fetched. Maybe he didn't intentionally make them better, but I would guess his presence helped them (for instance, less defensive attention and more space on the ice for them).

I went with my heart and picked Beliveau. I'm not really one to favor a player primarily for being an important part of a dynasty. Probably the main reason I think Beliveau and Hull are close is that Beliveau was so much more versatile. If Hull was a better playmaker, I think I'd be forced to pick him. I still think the numbers are on his side though.
