We continue our series where Canucks Army will profile various players of interest leading up to the new season.

As the youngest of the top six defenseman, Alexander Edler has long been groomed as the future cornerstone on the blueline. Though he enjoyed his best season point-wise in 2009-2010, there were some negatives sprinkled in here to go along with his season-ending ankle injury (what's that you say? A defensive injury? Who'd a thunk it?!) that came from your friend and mine Dustin Byfuglien. With a summer of healing behind him, can E-Train polish some of his rough edges and take another step forward to being a true #1 NHL defenseman?

We continue our series where Canucks Army will profile various players of interest leading up to the new season.

What would have happened if Daniel didn't get hurt last year? What if he didn't miss almost 20 games to injury? What would his numbers have been? What would Henrik's have been? Would Daniel have won the Art Ross or the Hart instead of Henrik?

Canucks fans can ask a lot of questions about Daniel's missed opportunities last season, because of his absense. One thing that they cannot question is Daniel's emergence as an elite NHL goal scorer.

So what on earth does Daniel Sedin do for an encore? Simple.

The baby Flames face-off against the baby Canucks this aft, with guys like Jon Rheault and TJ Brodie looking to build on a couple of strong performances heading into the main camp. Undrafted Edmonton Oil Kings goaltender Cam Lanigan will get the start for Calgary today. The kid had a rough year behind the WHL's worst team last season and was passed over in the draft as a result. The contest will be largely meaningless for a number of folks on both sides, but you can bet Lanigan will have his game face on.
