Considering Bob Green is married to Mitch Holmberg's mom... yeah, I'd say he's familiar with him.

Someone will sign Holmberg, he's earned the opportunity at the AHL level. If it's the Oilers, some will claim nepotism but I think that it would be unfair. Holmberg is a talented player in his own right.
