I don't think anyone who has seen/heard of hay-bailing Hulls on the farm thinks Beliveau could beat him in any actual feat of strength.
Here is the post I responded to verbatim:
Reasons: Both have great resumes, but Beliveau's a huge center, which I'm partial toward when the other guy's (I guess at the time) an average-sized wing."
No mention of skill set.
Huge center > average-sized wing?
