The captaincy

Recommended Posts

I think Jean Beliveau was a leader of teams in the 50s even before he had a C on his jersey.

Some guys are just leaders, doesn't matter if you give them a letter or not

When Doug Gilmour was here for a cup of coffee, he was pretty much the leader of the locker.

Even big Jean beliveau had his detractors at the time he was anointed captain. In fact, didn't he almost lose the team vote to become captain? Barely beating out Boom boom?

Yes it was a very close vote, and boom boom did not take it well. I believe he actually retired, 1st time, and did not play for the habs again. They took it seriously in those days.
