A while back, Global Television did a series on the 7 Greatest Canucks of all time. Since the team is currently on a 7-game win-streak and I just tossed off a list of the Best 7 Players in the Last 7, there continue to be signs of number 7 strangeness.
For instance, the first video issued in that series was a profile on Harold Snepsts, #27, which a good hockey fan was kind enough to upload to YouTube on January 7, 2007.
Yeah, I think I’m getting carried away with the #7, but what the hell.
Anyway, I also thought that all this recent Rory Fitzpatrick business made it a perfectly good moment to bring a little Snepsts into everyone’s life. After all, this hard-working, lunch-bucket player made it to two NHL All Star games—1977 and 1982.
