from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Talk about a shock to forward Robby Fabbri’s system.
When Fabbri was acquired by the Red Wings in a trade last month, he went from the reigning Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues to a Detroit team currently last in the NHL standings.
That’s the definition of going from the penthouse to the outhouse.
But if you ask him, hear the tone of his voice when answering the question, watch him around the locker room day to day, there is no sense of disappointment.
Fabbri wants to be Red Wing and is entirely glad the trade worked out as it did.
“I want to be here, I’m happy with being here,” said Fabbri, who has 10 points (five goals) in 11 games with the Wings. “I’ve said it before, with the team we have in this room, the standings don’t do us justice. We’re getting there and getting better, we’re learning from the stuff we’re doing wrong.”
