I'm thinking the Habs' performance this season has not been helping.

I know this is a bit off topic, but I wonder if Jean Beliveau lives a comfortable life. I know he's employed by the Canadiens in a sort of honorary role, and he attends a lot (if not all) the ceremonies and large events, but I wonder if he has enough money to live comfortably. He played in the 50s when players weren't millionaires. Sure they made some money but a lot of them had second jobs. He retired way before players were rich, and I'm sure he made a bit of money afterwards but I don't think he's living a luxury life. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Anyway, I hope he gets better. I love seeing him at all the games, he's an important part of the team and the history and I would hate having a team that isn't affiliated to him in any way.

I think the habs take care of him, remember hearing something about habs being the best team that takes care of retired players

He was Vice-President of the team for decades, wasn't he? He should be fine, financially.

Hope he gets better.

Would suck to see him kick the bucket when the habs are so terribly run.

For a guy with the CH tattooed on his heart, I'd get a stroke too having to see them being degraded the way they have been.

What took Gillett nearly 10 years to build is being undone in less than 2 years....

Indeed. It isn't the first time that he has something wrong with his health if I remember correctly.

Get well.

As far as I know, Mr. Beliveau has no trouble financially. Im not certain what the salary for a ambassador is, but couple that with his NHL players pension, and I have no doubts that hes fine. I know he sold much of his personal memorabilia a few years ago, but that was to generate $$$ for his children and grandchildren.
