With all due respect to Jean Beliveau, he wasn't looking at a $30 million contract for the 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th years of his professional career with a player option of a $2 million buyout and a backdoor $6 million opportunity for a potential increase in franchise value from a non-playoff team the way Mark Messier was.

I'd love to fall into a trap like that, myself.
