    The young guys are here in Chicago.

    They're here! Since the Minnesota Wild are facing the lowly Chicago Blackhawks and are pretty locked in the standings, they kept Kirill Kaprizov, Mats Zuccarello, Jonas Brodin, and Jared Spurgeon in Minnesota for the one-game road trip to Illinois. But! This means that recently recalled Marco Rossi and Nic Petan get to make their impressions against a bad team and hometown Brock Faber gets to make his NHL debut.

    It isn't the most interesting game when it comes to the context of the season, but we will be keeping an eye on all the young guys and debutant.

    Projected Wild lineup

    Marcus Johansson -- Frederick Gaudreau -- Matt Boldy
    Nic Petan -- Marco Rossi -- Ryan Hartman
    Gustav Nyquist -- Sam Steel -- Marcus Foligno
    Brandon Duhaime -- Connor Dewar -- Ryan Reaves

    Jake Middleton -- Calen Addison
    Alex Goligoski -- Brock Faber
    Jon Merrill -- John Klingberg

    Filip Gustavsson
    Marc-Andre Fleury

    Projected Blackhawks lineup

    Tyler Johnson -- Jonathan Toews -- Jason Dickinson
    Anders Bjork -- Andreas Athanasiou -- Buddy Robinson
    Boris Katchouk -- Jujhar Khaira -- Joey Anderson
    Austin Wagner -- MacKenzie Entwistle -- Reese Johnson

    Caleb Jones -- Seth Jones
    Wyatt Kaiser -- Connor Murphy
    Andreas Englund -- Nikita Zaitsev

    I think they are probably the top pairing of this bunch.

    For me, it looked like after the PP, Addison got benched, and he deserved it. Horrible, horrible game from Addison.  Just a single horrible from Rossi.  Petan was not very visible.  

    I've got to believe that Rossi will get coached up.  Petan, why did we sign him?  We've got way too many smaller guys, we need some beef depth.  I'd also like to point out that Petan is scoring at a better rate than Rossi in the A. Rossi's got a lot of work to do. 

    I'm starting to lean towards Protec's take on this. Maybe we could take a chance on A. Holtz?

    Horse a piece IMO. I really thought Klinger would flip a switch and be a bit better...but he hasn't. 

    I thought Klingberg looked absolutely brutal on the power play against Chicago.
