3/31/12 - Los Angeles @ Minnesota - 7:00 PM CDT - FSN

Wait, today's game in Saint Paul so we're not goin' back to Cali. No matter, if I gotta choose the coast, I gotta choose the East. I lived out there so don't go there.

So guess that means we're going with Plan B...The Prospect Game!

Without further adieu...hit the music Johnny!

Lets be honest, this sounds like a cheesy 70s Game Show theme song.

Now as you all know, my Wild prospect man-crush Casey Wellman was traded to New York a while back and since then I've been trying to find a new one. In the spirit of the end of a season which people want to forget or see their team lose, help me choose my next prospect man-crush.

Prospect #1:

Prospect #1 is a guy who like Casey Wellman came in and has been embraced and beloved by everyone in only one NHL game. Seriously, he could run for mayor at this point. However, just because he's loved by everyone doesn't mean that bandwagon has its pitfalls - the hot start can always fizzle out as I've learned with Casey. And another mod may have already called dibs.

He is...Jason Zucker.

Prospect #2

Prospect #2 has a bit of a goofy personality, one that can shows creativity, but plays a mature game above his years. Sometimes flashy, he's not afraid to try and fail...which can come in handy on this team. He's also the FBJ which means he's one bad mother****er.

He is....Mikael Granlund.

Prospect #3

Prospect #3 is a mystery. Maybe he's a forward. Maybe he's a defenseman with a heart of gold. No one knows except for this man. It is assumed that he will play a major role in Minnesota's future and as no one knows in what way, getting on the bandwagon before everyone else would make me a trendsetter. Or weird.

He is...the 2012 1st Round Pick.

Oh and I guess since Minnesota is playing Los Angeles I should take a look at the Kings prospects. Bernier? Goalies aren't really my style. Forbort? Like hell I'm cheering for a Sioux.

Wild prospects it is.

Los Angeles Kings
Brad wait that's Richardson - Anze Kopitar - Dustin "Bag" Brown
Dwight King (who?) - Mike wait that's Richards - Justin Williams
Pancake Penner - Jarret Stoll - Trevor "Traded For Pavol Demitra" Lewis
West Coast - No Names - 4th Liners

Rob Scuderi - Drew Doughty
Former Minnesota Wild D Willie Mitchell - "Terhaar Will Butcher" Slaya Voynov
Alec Martinez - Matt Greene

Jonathan Quick
Jonathan Bernier
Jonathan Not Appearing In This Game

Minnesota Wild
New Gaborik - Koivu #2 - Old Turtleneck Heatley
Not Zucker - Not Zucker - Jason Zucker
Darrol Powe! - Brodz!ak - Nick Johnson Has No Sound In His Name
AHL - Depression - Setting In

Marco Scandella - Elk River Native Nate Prosser
Healthy Defenseman #1 - BNTG
Justin Falk - Healthy Defenseman #2

Niklas "NHL 13" Backstrom
Josh "Never Been Traded" Harding
Mini Nordy

Yeah these are probably wrong

What says you gentle reader? Prospect #1? Prospect #2? Prospect #3? Or maybe some other guy like Mario Lucia, Brett Bulmer, Kyle Rau's brother or Zack Phillips?
