I was on the ice with Martin Lapointe at a hockey school once and he surely knows a Hab, does that count?

He knocked my stick out of my hands during a skating drill and told me I had to be wary of that.

The next year, I tried the move and got a slashing penalty.

I was pissed.

My dad knows Larry Walkers dad. I'm sure Larry knew some habs back in the day.

(Me)-(my dad)-(Larrys dad)-(Larry Walker)-(habs from back in the day)....

That's 4 degrees.

Meh.

I had a teacher in high school whose uncle won a Stanley Cup with Montreal.
Another teacher from the same school grew up a couple towns over from Guy Lafleur.
Georges Laraque has emailed me and sent two of my friends a brief letter and autograph.
I've gotta have some P.K. Subban connections I don' t know about, since I lived in Toronto for 4 years. (At the very least, I know a guy who knows someone / some people who would have played against him in the OHL. I also know Zach Boychuk's cousin... Boychuk and Subban were teammates in the WJHC in both '08 and '09).

Non-Habs:
I played against Ian White.
I know Darren Helm's cousin. (Helm is also a friend of a friend of mine).
My neighbour knows Andy Murray.
My grandpa knew Bill Barilko and Pete Babando.
I taught someone who is ranked for next year's draft.
Have a bunch of other connections (friend knows person x) to people who are in the WHL right now.
My friend grew up with Josh Harding.
Another friend knows Jordin Tootoo and knew Terrence Tootoo.
I had another teacher in high school who grew up with the Prongers (and yes, Chris was still a dink when he was a kid -- Sean was great though).
Fred Brathwaite has some sort of connection to my hometown.
I've shaken hands with/got autographs from him, Randy Gilhen, Kris King and Dave Manson.
I've been close enough to do the same with Teemu Selanne, but the line was just TOO long!
Mike Modano sent a friend of mine a letter and autograph.
I have been in Tie Domi's box at the ACC (it was part of an arena tour).
Know people who had connections (direct or through a friend) to certain Oilers in the late 80s/early 90s. My friend (same family as these other folks) also met Charlie Huddy a couple years ago. Said he didn't look to pleased that he was recognized.
Bob Nicholson glared at me and my friends for hanging out near the Canada dressing room during the Super Series. This was moment's after Pierre McGuire gave us a sheepish grin and turned away.
I've talked to people who do Game Day Production for the Oilers and Sens, as well as someone in PR who works for the Stars.

I shook hands with Guy Lafleur at an Ile Bizard gas station. A few years before that I ran into Guy Carbonneau at a Rona. And many many years before that I crossed paths with Steve Shutt at the Women's Pavillion at the Royal Vic (Don't ask what we were both doing in the women's pavillion). I had a video store in NDG not far from where Sergio Momesso grew up. One of my elementary teachers was Andre Boudrias' cousin. I rented heavy equipment at Dickie Moore's. Not once, not twice but three times.

How many degrees are those?

If we add all the meet and stuff. I've meet the whole habs team in 97 or so as they played baseball in my town, Breezer MVP btw and got his autograph among a good amount of players, talked to subban and maxwell on the phone, talked to weber, boedker and arniel on msn, talked to weber, fortier, maxwell some other players at the dev camp, asked pacioretty if he would sign or not, got autograph from a bunch of guys. I forgot his name, but a 80' player is owner of the golf shop here, I've seen him. Seen Rejean houle and talked a bit at a dragon boat competition in mtl.

Clearly there's a story behind the Perry punching by your friend. What happened?

My parents would baby sit Carbo's daughter. He came over to my house quite a few times. She's still pretty close to my sister even though she lives in Dallas now.
