Clarifications;
01/07/1972 trade of JUDE DROUIN from Minnesota to NY Islanders for CRAIG CAMERON did not occur until 01/07/1975 - the Islanders weren't even in the league in January of 1972 ;-)

The Pittsburgh-LosAngeles trade involving BOB WOYTOWICH & AL McDONOUGH actually occured on the 11th, not the 12th.

The March 1972 trade b/t the Rangers & Buffalo for PHIL GOYETTE took place on March 5, 1972.

Detroit signed THOMMIE BERGMAN on 08/31/1972.

Minnesota signed JIM McELMURY on 02/29/1972.

Addition;
March 3, 1972: St. Louis acquired KEVIN O'SHEA on waivers from Buffalo.
