Name the highest scoring brothers in the history of the NHL?

Wayne and Brent Gretzky

Yep, that's it.  Most people say the Sutters.  The Sedins are getting close though.

But... none of that is true.  The Gretzky brothers had 2861 NHL points.  The Sutters had more, combining for 2934.  And the Sedins only have 2037, so they're nowhere close.

I prefer alternative facts.

I guess you are right.  Thought the Gretzky's had more.  I thought the record was in the 2500's.

The get the Gretzky answer, SI, they usually ask for the highest scoring pair of brothers.

Maybe that's it.  I'm trying to think of where I heard that answer before.  Oh well.  Now I am going to go check to see if Tim Kerr still holds the record for PP goals in a season.

It's easy to say your right when facts are backing you up.  It takes a special kind of mind to argue against math.

Maybe Leivo 'steals his job' tonight.

4th line is back to useless. Not sure I would've gone with Roman Slolak against the speedy Canucks either.

After his game against Edmonton, yeah.  The two bad penalties and a number of plays getting hemmed in the defensive zone.  I really don't get the benefit of him being in the lineup, fluke pinball goal aside.
