Just an anecdote.

The Jean Beliveau Trophy is given to the Hab who has been the most active in the community. And during the informal press conference that announced it, Begin broke down crying talking about spending a day with a little sick boy who was fighting to stay alive, and who told Steve he would live on and become a hockey player and reach the NHL and play with Steve.

That touched Begin a lot because he's very aware that very priviledged of being healthy being paid handsomely to play hockey. He's also got a very beautiful wife and kids.

That guy's got a heart the size of the Earth. Even Jean Beliveau praised him. When Jean Beliveau praises, you know the praised one's for real. Mr. Beliveau was happy to see Begin wear a "A", also.

wish we had a couple more Begin's. One of my favorite players, look forward to seeing him work with Lapierre, think he would be a big help to him.

Good for Begin. It is always nice when guys who give back to charity and the commnity get rewarded. Although I know that is not why they do it Begin does it out of the goodness of his heart!

Beautiful anecdote though

So happy to have guys like Beliveau still being a part of this team, and his amazing personality and kindness living on in such an entertaining player as Begin, much respect or both of them
