my first reaction is to go with beliveau. by reputation, he is the most complete center there ever was. greatest leader in hockey history, won goal scoring titles, assist titles, hart trophies, was the best player on two dynasties. big huge guy, took on challengers early on and was mostly left alone after that.

but my question is, how was he defensively? again, by reputation beliveau was good. but was he selke good, or close to it?

because i also remember reading that bobby hull used his speed and strength to neutralize beliveau the year the hawks won the cup. on the other hand, hull's hawks certainly lost to beliveau's habs in the playoffs more often than they won.
