Not sure if this helps, but Sillinger played for Al Arbour this year. I'm sure this opens up some options in terms of old time players. Not only from his coaching years but also his playing years. Have fun with this.

I was about to say that...the fact Gordie Howe played so long, you can link players throughout history to Sillinger in a few steps by using Gordie Howe or Dave Keon to Mark Howe from the Whalers.

Does anyone dare put a list together of all the players Sillinger has played with?

What is kind of funny with all the teams Sillinger has played for, he never played with Michel Petit or J.J. Daigneault, who have both played for 10 teams each. He has played with Jim Dowd and Bobby Dollas so those are pretty good links there.

You don't even have to go that far.

Sillinger played with Mike Dunham in New York (06-07).
Dunham and Niedermayer played together in New Jersey.

Additionally...

Sillinger and Grant Marshall were teammates in Columbus (01-03).
Grant Marshall played with Niedermayer on the '03 Cup team.

Er, you can skip almost all those steps you used to get to Paul Kariya. He played with Sillinger on the 94-96 Mighty Ducks and the 05-06 Predators.

Or just use Jaroslav Spacek, who plays with Miller and played with Sillinger in Columbus.

Another link for Nieds is through Pronger, who played with Sillinger in St. Louis.
