I can also mention guys like Martin St. Louis and Eric Perrin, who were linemates for four years at Vermont and then for a year with the Cleveland Lumberjacks but whose reunion was nothing special in Tampa Bay.
Again, apples and oranges regarding Perrin and St. Louis--both were afterthoughts as neither was drafted. Besides which, I bet you Perrin feels like the reunion was pretty special...
