    He was one of the all-time greatest. Probably the greatest Captain the Canadiens ever had.
    The La Presse article (http://www.lapresse.ca/sports/hockey...-de-83-ans.php) lists all his achievements in hockey and in retirement, but everyone will remember him as a humble and classy guy.

    Allow me to correct myself: THE greatest Captain the Montreal Canadiens ever had. Period.

    It is the middle of the night and already homages and remembrances are pouring out from all over. Prepare yourself, the province of Quebec is in for some serious grieving in the next several days.

    He was a gentleman & always had class. He was a role model and a great hockey player.

    The hockey world lost one of its true legends. And we all know it's only a matter of time until another, Gordie Howe, also passes on.

    I'm not a religious person, so i can't offer prayers to his family. However, i will offer my sincere respecfs & wish that his great life will be celebrated with joy and not sadness.

    Long live Le Gros Bill.

    A very big lost indeed. I have met him once, I had the chance to speak with him for about 5min and what a class guy and so passionate about hockey I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

    Wonder who's going to take is place as the next Montréal Canadian ambassador?
