1st off; This is a great site! Thanks for all the effort you've put into it!

I have several updates/changes I've come across while researching my own projects & will leave same with the year in question;

2 clarifications for 1971;
Vancouver actually signed DAVE DUNN on 09/20/1970, not 11/1971.

Phoenix (WHL) traded GERRY ODROWSKI to St.Louis on 11/28/1971.
