Darren dreger/Nonis

They are second cousins???? Did that ever get a thread here?
Its mentioned in the "Family section"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Nonis

Nonis had a pretty outstanding hockey career captaining the Main Black Bears. A true blue hockey man surprised me when i read it.

Wat to go dave!

It's pretty much the only reason why Dreger is considered an insider.

I don't see why people care. I don't even know my second cousins(if I have any), and the fact that they are second cousins doesn't change what information Leafs management releases to the media.

I don't know my second cousins either. Granted I do live 19 hours from my closest family, so that's probably it right there lol.

I think there was a thread when Nonis was hired on by Burke. Nothing new really.

Its pretty well known around here that they are extended family.

I know lots of my second cousins very well. My family keeps in touch.

Second cousins are the children of your parents first cousins.

Your parents first cousins are your first cousins once removed.

For the record, there is mention that the relationship may even be more distant. This is quote from a Feschuk article:
"And what of the new GM? Well, Dave Nonis is clearly gifted in many aspects of the managerial portfolio. But as Jack Capuano, the New York Islanders coach who played with Nonis at the University of Maine, was saying the other day, Nonis is a corporate guy who plays things close to the vest. Just as he keeps his beloved fine wine in a dark cellar, Nonis keeps many of this thoughts tucked away in his presumably vast brain ó which, we assure you, is not connected via electronic implant to the BlackBerry of TSNís Darren Dreger, Nonisís third cousin."

The term second cousin is often used loosely. Remember when Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady were "cousins"....and it turned out they were only related by marriage somehow.
