Harold Snepsts was a terrific defensman with an even better mustache.  It's a shame that his lone season at the Met Center was arguably the worst of his career.  He was the Vancouver Canucks all-time leader in games played and penalty minutes when he was dealt to the North Stars staight up for Al MacAdam.  Both were fan favorites in their respective towns, and it was a highly unpopular move for each.  As it turns out, both Snepsts and MacAdam's best days were behind them.  Snepsts only trading card in a North Stars uniform was this 1984 O-Pee-Chee card, featuring one of the worst full-uniform airbrush jobs in hockey card history.
