Imagine the Prucha chant mixed with the Dubi chant and double it. Thats what you would hear after he destroyed someone every game. He was the prototypical stay at home physical defenseman, and a master of the game "behind the play".

Not slow like Hal Gil, and much much more physical than Hal Gil. Think Douglas Murray combined with Hal Gil.

Mean and nasty but like others have said not a dirty player. The kind of D man you needed to win a cup in those days (Scott Stevens, Adam Foote, Derian Hatcher, Daneyko, Fetisov, etc)

One of the best points in this thread is how he really did enable Leetch to become the player he did. Beuk was a total rock back there. I doubt we'll ever see that kind of pairing again.

If McIlrath becomes anything near what Beuk was, I'm pretty sure we'd all be ecstatic.

All of the above comments on him are dead-on. Chara sans the offense.

What a player...what a Ranger.

Leetch's HOF speech...he singled out Beuk and said he made him a better player...doesn't get better than that.

Beuke tolerated zero crap from opposing players, including Lindros.

I met Jeff back in 81 when I was living in Newmarket Ontario . I had taken a year off of school and was working at a store in a local mall and Jeff was always in once a week for supplies. We got to talking and I found out he was playing for the Newmarket Jr Flyers....he later would move onto Major Jr .

We[my bro & I] attended a lot of games ...and harassed a lot of guys on the visiting side . I can remember one game where the other team started to climb right over the glass to get at us . LOL...if it had not been for Jeff I might be dead now . They hauled them guys off the glass and duked it out in a wild brawl . Jeff's son Brock is now playing at UPEI in the tough Atlantic University Hockey Conference this season as a Freshman . I hope to attend a few games and hopefully will be lucky enough to meet him an bump into his dad at some point . He was all class as a teenager that I do know !

Great story. Beuk was such a meat and potatoes guy. I loved watching him back there guarding his team. The guy really cared and went up against the best of them.

When Eric Lindros came along Jeff was the guy who kept him in line. Lindros was knocking guys out left and right with his hits. Like Lucic only there were less rules about running guys back then. Lindros didn't have to worry about running some guy between the numbers or being suspended for sending someone head first into the boards. Open ice hits were anything goes. Beuk was the Rangers antidote to all that.

Those '97 playoffs were incredible. Glimpses of vintage Gretzky. Too bad we ran into that red-hot Flyers team.
