Hey all, long time, no see. It's been nearly two whole weeks since the last time I published an article. I've been busy with a combination of real life and some research and development, working to improve the pGPS model. In the meantime, I'm compiling articles in which to use the updated data - I'll have a handful of draft related content coming in the near future.
In the present, however, we have another edition of the Canucks Army podcast for you. It's full from tip to tale with draft content, as J.D. and I discuss how the Canucks performed at the NHL Entry Draft in Buffalo two weekends ago, as well as which teams were making savvy picks and which teams were reaching (*cough*Boston*cough*).
And that's not even the most exciting part: we've made a pretty amazing upgrade to our podcast - something that you'll surely notice as soon as you fire it up.

Most of us have already pencilled Loui Eriksson in on a line with Henrik and Daniel Sedin. After all, that was a part of the pitch the Canucks sold Eriksson on when they signed him to a six-year $36-million contract.
I'm sure the Canucks have every intention of starting the season with the Swedish trio together, as they'll all have missed training camp while representing Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey. Canucks Coach Willie Desjardins will need his top line to hit the ground running for the Canucks to keep pace in the playoff race early. The Canucks need for secondary scoring could test Desjardins patience with Eriksson as a fixture alongside the Sedins, though.

There were reports earlier this week that the Canucks were working on an extension for goaltender Jacob Markstrom, and that has come to fruition as it was announced this afternoon that the Canucks and Markstrom have agreed to a three year contract extension:
