From 1950 to 1971, Jean Béliveau was one of the greatest hockey players of his time. Gentleman, company man, businessman, gentle giant, captain, star, husband, family man, his story is also the one of Quebec-Montreal’s rivalry. The story of Quebec’s Quiet Revolution, the French Canadians takeover, hockey modernisation, the players assertion against the league leaders and the "making" of a national hero. Jean Béliveau will apply throughout his life the wise advice of his great friend Senator Molson, also owner of the Canadiens in the 50s and 60s: "If we want things to be meaningful, it’s up to us to give them one.”
