The Gazette’s Red Fisher continues his look at the Top 10 trades in Canadiens’ history. At No. 8 is the the acquisition of Vincent Damphousse from the Edmonton Oilers for Shayne Corson, Brent Gilchrist and Vladimir Vujtek. Fisher writes that GM Serge Savard won the jackpot with this trade, but Damphousse says the move was made for personal reasons.
“That’s strictly what it was,” he said. “It was a personal situation rather than a professional one. That whole year in Edmonton was a great year professionally, but I was going through a divorce.”
