My grandmother met Jean Beliveau once and said he was exactly the gentleman people always said he was. She saw him sipping coffee and asked him for an autograph. Not only did he oblige but he also asked her to join him and talked with her for a good 20 minutes, as if she was a friend of his.
My mother got to meet the entire 1990-91 Canadiens roster when they went to visit the hospital she was in. Total fluke, she was pregnant with my sister and had taken a fall on some ice, so she was rushed to the hospital. That same day, they were all there. I was only about 3, so I don't remember it. I do have the autographs of every single player though.
I've met the likes of Zednik(true class), Theodore(pretty cool), Rivet(very nice) and Ribeiro(total ass).
