Kevin Bacon?

I can get him in 3:
Kevin Bacon was in Apollo 13 (1995) with Googy Gress
Googy Gress was in Me, Myself & Irene (2000) with Brendan Shanahan
Shanny played on the Red Wings with Yzerman, Fedorov, ect., the year after Sillinger left.

Carey Price, Sergei Kostitsyn, Josh Georges...

If you include the minors, then I have no idea.

I haven't been able to find one. 3 degrees is the most so far.

Anybody catch something I've missed?

(BTW, its basically every player drafted or develloped by the Habs on their current roster. Hamrlik and Dandenault both seem to have just missed him by a season).

I'm having trouble with Habs players.

Gorges played with Brian Boucher in SJ, Boucher played with Sillinger in PHX

The rookies who have only played for Montreal are third-degree, I think... I haven't cracked this one yet.

My bad, I did not bother to check Gorges, I assumed he was drafted by the Habs.

Rookies in Montreal work. But I doubt anyone in the league for 2 seasons could pass this test.

Anaheim (Pronger, 03-04, St. Louis)
Dallas (?????)
San Jose (Shelley, 02-03, Columbus)
Phoenix (Doan, 03-04, Phoenix)
Los Angeles (Nagy, 03-04, Phoenix)

Vancouver (Salo, 00-01, Ottawa)
Edmonton (Staios, 96-97, Vanocouver)
Calgary (Langkow, 03-04, Phoenix)
Minnesota (Demitra, 03-04, St. Louis)
Colorado (Smyth, 06-07, NYI)

Chicago (Havlat, 00-01, Ottawa)
Detroit (Drake, 05-06, St. Louis)
Columbus (Nash, 02-03, Columbus)
Nashville (Legwand, 05-06, Nashville)
St Louis (Kariya, 05-06, Nashville)

Buffalo (Spacek, 02-03, Columbus)
Montreal (???)
Ottawa (Alfredsson, 00-01, Ottawa)
Toronto (Blake, 06-07, NYI)
Boston (York, 00-01, Ottawa)

New York Rangers (Sjostrom, 03-04, Phoenix)
New York Islanders (Sillinger currently there)
New Jersey (Salvador, 03-04, St. Louis)
Philadelphia (Hartnell, 05-06, Nashville)
Pittsburgh (Taffe, 03-04, Phoenix)

Atlanta (Recchi, 98-99, Philadelphia)
Florida (Vokoun, 05-06, Nashville)
Washington (Kozlov, 06-07, NYI)
Carolina (Whitney, 02-03, Columbus)
Tampa Bay (Boyle, 00-01, Florida)

If you finished the season on any team except for Dallas or Montreal, you have for certain played with someone who has played with Sillinger.

Only Dallas and Montreal finished the year without a player who has ever played with Sillinger, so any candidates must be Stars or Canadiens.

Sillinger played with Eric Lindros in Philly so that excludes everyone who played for Dallas last year.

New players (not rookies) for this year are Winchester, Richards and Holmqvist

Winchester - Steve Staios - Sillinger
Richards - Dan Boyle - Sillinger
Holmqvist - Dan Boyle - Sillinger

New players for Habs in this year's roster are Hamrlik, Brisebois (in fact returnee), Kostopoulos, Smolinski.

So have a look:
Hamrlik - Daymond Langkow - Sillinger
Brisebois - Sean Hill - Sillinger
Smolinski - Sami Salo - Sillinger
Kostopoulos - Lasse Pirjetä - Sillinger

So basically it seems that if there are any they have to be rookies.

I wonder how many years it'll take before we get a player who has never played within two degrees of Mike Sillinger.

Don Lever coached all of the above in Hamilton this season

Don Lever coached Mike Sillinger in 2003-04 in St.Louis

I know were bringing in minor leagues and coaches, but technically...

To answer my own question, yes...

Mike Sillinger plays on Islanders with Andy Sutton who played with Patrick Marleau in 1999/2000

I would almost be more interesting to see out of every player that played in the NHL this year what percentage of them have directly played with Mike Sillinger
