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

It's not often a team can claim a slam dunk on a trade, but the cap era produces victims left and right. Following a lackluster season with San Jose in 2008-09 where he was dead last with a -12, Christian Ehrhoff became one of those victims. Bundled with Brad Lukowich to clear enough salary to ink Dany Heatley, Vancouver gave up two forgettable prospects in return for what turned out to be their highest scoring defenseman in a single season since Ed Jovanovski in 2002-03.

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.

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?
