going to work backwards here:

aebischer played with ray bourque on the '01 avs
ray bourque played with brad park early on in boston
brad park was traded for a package that included carol vadnais
vadnais played for toe blake his rookie year
toe blake played with joliat for a few years at the respective beginning/end of their careers
joliat played with phantom joe during phantom joe's second tour with the habs


how about blake and boom boom geoffrion?

actually, just thought of a short cut:

malone to joliat
joliat to toe blake
toe blake walked away from coaching with a cup winning team featuring a young serge savard
savard played with bob gainey
gainey briefly coached aebischer after he fired claude julien


the challenge remains blake geoffrion and boom boom

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
Well now I did. Not every 2 players are going to be over 100 years apart, and it is supposed to be challenging.

i guess it would be totally cheating to point out that ekblad was the captain of the team orr coached in the CHL top prospects game this year?

I was wondering if you were assuming Ekblad was "on" the Panthers, but apparently that's unneccesary:

Bobby Orr Played with Doug Wilson in 78-79 in Chicago
Wilson played with Ray Whitney in 92-93 in San Jose
Whitney played with Olli Jokinen in 00-01 in Florida
Jokinen played with Mark Scheifele in 13-14 in Winnipeg
Scheifele played with Ekblad in 12-13 in Barrie.

Cy Denneny to Sidney Crosby.

but... gordie howe and mcdavid's coach in erie, robbie ftorek, missed each other on the red wings by only two years, so they have lots of mutual teammates.

It's possible, but you have to leave the NHL for a bit

Did Mess play with someone who played with Howe? Seems plausible, probably could have saved a step there.
