News: Earl Traded to Wild

Minnesota Wild swap LW Ryan Hamilton for Toronto's LW Robbie Earl.

This makes perfect sense. Burke wants two lines of pure skill and substance, and two of pugnacity, testosterone, truculence and belligerence.

Since Earl is supposed to be the former, and has failed to demonstrate any signs of making it to a top-six role, his time was up when Burke took the helm.

This is definitely a step in the right direction, seeing how the Leafs have piles of mediocre forwards who are career third liners and lack any sign of a real offensive superstar. You may as well have a little more belligerence while the going gets tough for the franchise. That's something Hamilton can do.

A few extra hits a game might even get fans at the ACC on their feet, which would please nobody more than Matty Stajan.

Your thoughts?
