But this would be three degrees for everyone on the Habs except for Gorges. Right?

Brisebois played with Mark Rycroft last year in Colorado, who played with Sillinger in St. Louis.

Mike Sillinger played in Tampa with Vincent Lecavalier.
Vincent Lecavalier was in a deleted scene from the movie "The Punisher" with John Travolta.
John Travolta was in "Phenomenon" with Kyra Sedgwick
Kyra Sedgwick was in "Murder in the first" with, and is married to Kevin Bacon.

I've spent all these years trying not to hit a triple digit post count. This thread brings me one step closer. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Props to the OP for thinking of this.

If anyone else is as obsessed with this as i now am, you can probably end this thread by doing analysis on about 60 players (everyone to play for the habs and stars this year)
You can eliminate most of the Stars, because Eric Lindros last year played with the Stars and played with Sillinger in Philly.

So only Stars players who did not play in Dallas last year are eligible.

Same thing can be done with Montreal: Radek Bonk played there last year, and played with Sillinger in Ottawa.

So only Canadiens players who did not play in Montreal are eligible.

Besides the Lindros connection..

Loui Eriksson AND Joel Lundqvist played with Tomi Kallio (03--05 Frolunda/SEL)
Tomi Kallio played on 02-03 CBJ with Sillinger

I believe all of these check out EXCEPT Chipchura. He played with Jeremy Colliton for Prince Albert Raiders, and Colliton played with Sillinger for Islanders.

Scratch thesee off your list. I already posted a connection for A. Kostitsyn, and I just found one for Markov. He played with Havlat for Moscow Dynamo, and Havlat played with Sillinger (Sens).

I'll inspect the others on this list.

All those Montreal players played with Bonk and Niniimaa last year (at least in pre-season with the rookies).

I should clarify. I included NHL games only.

You are completely right on the Bonk connection.

Only Carey Price is exempt.

Price
Niskanen
Fistric

Again, I'm using NHL games only.

So wait... if Price, Niskanen and Fistric have played WITH someone who's played with Sillinger, they're disqualified?? Well in that case, Price is out as he plays with Brisebois, who (according to someone else here) played in the 1991 WJC with Sillinger.

I'm not surprised this thread was made, but I am surprised it took someone so long to think of it!

I don't have that level of technical knowhow. If I did, I would have given it a shot.
For anyone that ever wants to give it a try, this is the Oracle of Bacon site that first did it:

It would make a heck of school project.

if we include non NHL games, price gets disqualified. Anyone have non-nhl links for niskanen and fistric to sillinger? (2 degrees).

i just want to clarify, because some people seem to have misunderstood. 2 degrees works like this:
Andrej Meszaros --plays with--->Daniel Alfredsson --played with---> Mike Sillinger

Possible link to Dallas found. Does anyone know if Brad Richards played any pre-season games with Tampa Bay in the 1999-2000 season?
