He's the only player that got fans to do a protest in front of the Bell Center/Forum so the organization would keep him. That's got to say something.
Honestly, it's a toss up between Maurice, Béliveau and Roy. There have been many other great players on this team throughout the ages, but those three have made this team's legacy and legend what it is today.
hard to tell, seeing as he was dead long before any of us were even born.
I heard yesterday on "L'époque des Héros" on Radio Canada that Morenz played hockey during a time when it was not permitted to pass the puck to players ahead of you on the ice. Only lateral and backward passes were alowed.
It was a very different game. Hard to compare, indeed.
