The best part of the Sillinger thread is that through Mark Howe and Gordie Howe, Sillinger was within six degrees of everyone who had ever played in the NHL. Including a few players who only played one season on a team called the Quebec Bulldogs from 1919.
Sillinger's six degrees of everyone in hockey will likely carry through for a few more decades. That's amazing. I wonder if he's ever met Gordie Howe.
