This idea is mostly a fantasy by fans based on thinking about the team as a family. Otherwise it's not a proven formula in any sense.
There were once these Richard brothers that made out okay for the Habs. Some Mahovolich guys were also not too shabby.

Chicago had some bums named Hull playing there as well...

Larry Robinson's brother Moe played 1 game for the Habs. His other brother Curly did not get a shot.
