I understand that, but just becouse Beliveau protected his linemates to some degree does not mean he was tougher, faster, or stronger than Bobby Hull. No?

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.
Okey so now all of a sudden Beliveau was some kind of Gordie Howe? None of Hull or Beliveau was.
