I know we missed Mikko Koivu by 1 pick (which may have been to our advantage), but it would be nice to have some brothers playing on the same team. You don't exactly have to go searching for chemistry, do you?
Brother combos have rarely been effective, at least in recent memory. The Bures played together and they were no good, the Courtnals did squat together, the Sedins have been uninspiring at best, and the Hatchers were never really good at the same time in Dallas. All of these teams thought that reuniting the brothers would be a good idea, but it never panned out for any of them.

I say we should ignore last names altogether and select guys for our team based on talent alone.
