6 Degrees of Separation

Can you link any two players in the history in 6 degrees or less? Keep it to only playing careers, must have played on the same time at the same time.

Example: Charlie Conacher and Brad Richards

1. Charlie Conacher played on the 37/38 Maple Leafs with Syl Apps.
2. Syl Apps played on the 47/48 Maple Leafs with Ted Kennedy.
3. Ted Kennedy played on the 56/57 Maple Leafs with Dick Duff.
4. Dick Duff played on the 70/71 Sabre with Gilbert Perreault.
5. Gilbert Perreault played on the 86/87 Sabres with Dave Andreychuk.
6. Dave Andreychuk played on the 03/04 Lightning with Brad Richards.

If you can get it, you get to name 2 players.

First up...

Frank Nighbor and Sidney Crosby.

If you're doing this from memory, I bow to your infinite knowledge of hockey history.

did it ten ways from sunday

going to get creative

Newsy Lalonde coached and may have played with
Aurel Joliat in montreal who played with
Hector "Toe" Blake who coached
Serge Savard who played with
Rod Langway who played with
Olaf Kolzig who played with Alex O

yes I know I broke a rule--but looked at different ways and could not get it

next up if you like

Nicklas Jensen and Georges Vezina ( not as hard as you think)

btw--yes I broke the spirate of the rules--but might I suggest that who ever posts the two players needs to be able to link them one way or another himself?

I absolutely love how there is multiple different paths for each person. Both responses to my challenges have been different than the ones I found.

I should have specified that it should be kept to playing careers only. If you use a guy as a coach and a player that could span 5 or 6 decades. Unless you want to use all coaches. Bob coached with Bill, Bill coached with John, ect...

well you didn't so we are driving a truck through that little loop hole

it is almost impossible to link someone who played in 1913 to someone who played in in 2014 without having atleast one coach involved.

only about 300players have played 1000 games plus--1000 games means 13 season


2014-1913 is 101 years, you would need a direct connection of players playing 20 years in each connection. Unless you can get a connection with Chelios and a few others in one move--you wont be able to link many active players to players 100 years ago

I think tapping out with only one coach per link would be acceptable

That's because he's an amateur. Inducted into the HOF in 1947, played with the Winnipeg Victorias in the 1890s to 1900s.

This one should be a good challenge. It's possible.
