What To Pay Robby Fabbri

06/09/2020 at 9:24am EDT

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,

The trade for Robby Fabbri paid off for the Detroit Red Wings right away, leading them to their first (and only) three-game winning streak of the season.

Now it’s on general manager Steve Yzerman to settle on Fabbri’s value to the team’s future....

All Fabbri cost the Red Wings in the trade was grinder Jacob de la Rose, a waiver-wire pickup from 2018-19. Fabbri was on a one-year contract worth $900,000.

He was one of the Wings’ few scoring threats, though he also struggled defensively, racking up a minus-29 rating. A two-year deal would still make him a restricted free agent when it's up, and he’s likely to get somewhere in the $3 million annually range.

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.
