First of all, let me say that this is an excellent website. It provides an historical perspective of NHL trades.

But I think the March 23, 1999 trade of Vince Damphousse to the San Jose Sharks is incorrect. I believe that the deal involved a first-round draft pick going to Montreal. This should be corrected for the sake of accuracy.

Right you are! That pick turned out to be Marcel Hossa! I changed it. Thanks.
