TTM Success: Jean Beliveau
It took 405 days to get this return back, but I am extremely happy with it. Jean Beliveau is one of hockey's greatest players. He won 10 Stanley Cups as a player and another 7 as an executive with the Montreal Canadiens. Beliveau was the first ever winner of the Conn Smythe trophy, back in 1964-65. At age 39, in his 20th season, Believeau scored 76pts in 70 games, good enough for 9th spot in the league scoring race. Beliveau finished his career with 507 goals and 1219 points. He was a first ballot HHOFer in 1972. I sent this request back in October of 2011. This is my longest return and first to make the round trip of a calendar year. Definitely worth the wait.
