Father Son Combo's

Which father/son combo was better between the Hulls and the Howes? Appologies to Marty, but he doesn't belong in this comparison. I also think there was another Hull son, but don't know for sure. This poll is meant for just one father and his best hockey playing son. So you can't say, Pa Sutter and all of his sons.

I think in these we should look down to weaker of the father/son combo so I say Hulls because I think Mark Howe is weakest player of those four. And I don't mean he was a bad player, but still not as good as his father or one of the Hulls.

Best players in order

Hull (Brett)
Howe (Mark)

With all due respect to Mark Howe he was a cut below all of them. That being said the Hull combo would be a more lethal combo on the ice

Brent Hull was a CFL player. He was the "other Hull"

While Brett Hull has Mark Howe creamed in peak value, I'm not sure he has much on career value. And I think Gordie is significantly better than Bobby. I'm going Howe.

Also, the Hull's would both have been going for the shot, never the pass

I'd go with the Hulls but I think this combo would never work out. As Thornton_19 pointed both are too selfish(in a way that doesn't damage the team since both of them had deadly shots) to work together. Howe-Howe would work pretty well I think.
