6 degrees of a Hab.

Is anyone here 6 degrees (or less) from a Hab?

I just found out on Friday that my schoolmate's cousin's boyfriend is PK Subban. And Thats only 3 degrees.

Let's share our connections.

There's a theory that everyone in the world is 6 degrees from everyone else. Which is bull.

But you know when someone says, My Uncle's Boss' Son's Teacher's Husband is in the MLB or whatever. Well each connection is a degree.

Me-Uncle=1
Uncle-Boss=2
Boss-Son=3
Son-Teacher=4
Teacher-Husband=5

I'd be 5 degrees from an MLB player. I hope that helped.

Facebook ran this for giggles I guess and found there was an average separation of 5.5 degrees between any two profiles. So I wouldn't dispel it. Though there are still 100 or so tribes removed from "civilization" in the world who im sure would skew the numbers.

Hockey's kinda skewed though... Because it's such a big obvious network. Everyone who played organized hockey in Canada likely at least played with someone who played with an NHLer, if not the NHLer directly. Even if you were only 10.

And then once you have an NHLer, you have them all.

Like I played with a guy who played on a few provincial teams with Crosby. Crosby played Habs... voila.

Or, I know a guy who grew up with Jody Shelley. Shelley played Habs, done.

This theory is interesting, but with something organized like hockey, it makes it rather easy. I'd be surprised if anyone here is more than four.

My grandfather was drafted by the NY rangers. He decided not to play with them, cause he had already started a family, and hockey players didn't make that much back then. But he was used to play with all the old habs.

Wouldn't that make your cousin's girlfriend also Mario Lemieux's cousin? Well probably 2nd cousin once removed.

My friends' friend is Kris Letangs neighbour. He also had the chance to meet him during the summer, and Kris Letang invited his neighbour and him to go down to Pittsburgh and stay with them for abit. My friend watched 3-4 games, worked out with the team, ate with the team(cost him 100$ for a quesedilla, Letang paid), and stayed with Kris. He told me Crosby was a beast, Malkin is taller but not as big. Godard is shy. Kennedy really is ugly. And uhhh... Malkins funny and Talbot was a cool guy. Thats about it from what I can remember.
