Pretty sure it wasn't the beginning or end of the poster's reasoning, either, but it's possible he misjudged or was unaware of just how much of a brick poop house Hull actually was.
Eric Lindros was a guy that not only had the height but also immense strenght and knew how to use it. He's an outlier though, but lets just say that i would take 5'11" 180lbs Ken Linseman before Beliveau purely physically speaking. Jean was the better skater overall there though.
