Bobby Rousseau was Jean Beliveau's teammate so it is not a vs situation. Beliveau protected the smaller or non-physical players on his team.

Bobby Hull just took care of himself to a limited degree as he did not discourage the pest element like Bryan Watson very well. Such players learned very quickly not to bother Jean Beliveau or his linemates.
