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

Henrik Sedin had the greatest single season in the history of the Vancouver Canucks. He won the Hart trophy as the NHL's MVP. He led the league in scoring to win the Art Ross trophy, and led the league in a number of other statistical categories. And he did so without his twin brother Daniel at his side for 19 games. He is also a leading candidate to take over the team's vacated captaincy.

But even Henrik would admit... there is still room for improvement, starting after Game 82.

Leading Them On

Do you love it, or hate it? Does it get you feeling excited and pumped up or do you simply ignore it?

I'm talking about the Canucks Entrance Song, Where the Streets Have No Name. It's the song that's played as they take to the ice for warm-up before each game. And there seems to be some debate, albeit all in fun, about the effectiveness of the classic U2 track as a warm-up song.

For as much as I like (nay LOVE) that song, it's time as a pump-up track has come to end.

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.
