Robbie Earl traded

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Robbie Earl to the Minnesota Wild. He'll report to the Houston Aeros, the Wild's AHL affiliate. (Good thing EoDS is around to keep us up to date.)
Minnesota assistant general manager Tom Lynn says Earl "adds the elements of speed and energy that will strengthen our prospect base and improve team speed and attack in Houston.''
Hopefully the change in scenery will give Earl just the spark he needs, as his production this year is less than expected, especially compared to his stats from the last 2 years.

2008-09: 36 GP, 2-8-10, -3

C'mon Robbie, show everyone what you can do!
