Robby Fabri Has Been Good

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

The Red Wings acquired forward Robby Fabbri late in the evening of Nov. 6, after another discouraging loss to the New York Rangers.

The loss was the Wings’ 12th in 13 games, and nothing was looking good with the roster. Hope was slipping away, the losses were one-sided, and the immediate future looked bleak.

Since Fabbri has put on a Wings’ sweater – acquired from St. Louis for forward Jacob de la Rose – they’ve earned a point in all five games. They’ve won three games, and lost two either in overtime or a shootout, which was what happened Saturday in San Jose, the Sharks defeating the Wings 4-3 (1-0 in shootout).

Not perfect, but considering where the Wings were, it counts as a turnaround.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
