Fabbri didn't earn top six time and was a liability in the bottom six. DLR is a better option for 12-13th fwd. Blues probably went with DLR over a late pick so they can cover for injuries - looks like Steen could be out for a bit and he was playing on the shutdown 4th line.

I think Fabbri needs a change of scenery but I don’t like the idea of DLR. I would much rather look to Joshua in our system when he comes up and maybe even for right now Nolan.

I think de la Rose is going to provide exactly what the Blues want from him, defensively responsible minutes. I also think he'll earn a spot on the 4th line...

Worst case: he gets a few games on the 4th line and nothing happens when he's out there.

Best case: sundqvist 2.0 happy

That's what we want from our 4th line, nothing happening, lol. They have the most defensive starts & he'll fit right in. Fabbri is horrible on the back-check, never trusted
him out there since his rookie year... and I just didn't know any better yet back then.

As a casual Blues fan, I can understand that people are worried about trading Fabbri for a glorified depth guy; but I can tell you first hand he was ALWAYS injured and has looked pretty cooked these past couple of years.

Best case scenario it's a fair deal, worst case Fabbri reinforces his glass body and realizes his ex-potential.

Detroit gets more upside but the Blues get the kind of player they want for a scratch/4th like forward. I say it’s a fair deal

Steve Yzerman turns a waiver claim 12th-13th forward into Robbie Fabbri lol I know he's injured a lot but I like the risk taken on this guy. Fabbri could just need a change of scenery like James Neal (not saying he's gonna put up Neal's numbers just saying Fabbri can improve on this move)

After buying high on Perlini, they buy low on Fabbri. Now this is how you pay for a reclamation project!

Pretty fair deal IMO.
Wings get a injury prone offensive guy that could break out.
Blues get a larger, more defensively reliable bottom 6 guy.

Not the problem Fabbri has a lot of speed. Liked his speed third line.

More upside here for Detroit if Fabbri can stay healthy. He'll also probably get more opportunities offensively (while his defensive warts get overlooked) on a rebuilding team. I'm also not surprised St. Louis went with a fourth liner / press box guy over a pick as they look to defend their cup and having additional NHL ready depth never hurts. I think Detroit has the potential to win big with this trade if Fabbri bounces back to his previous development curve, but right now it looks pretty fair and I don't hate it from a Blues perspective either.

I think it's pretty even at this point. STL gets a bottom 6 forward who is responsible defensively and step in right now and play. Detroit gets a former 1st rd pick who hasn't been the same since tearing his ACL a may never play another NHL game.

Fabbri is still a great player and will get better. Change of scenery is good for him. I would have rather liked to see him in a Penguins Jersey rather than Detroit but whatever. Also wish he went to Carolina so him and Joel can be re-united... they were pretty close friends.

Him succeeding doesn't hurt the blues, he needed new scenery and this gives the blues a player back.
Wish him the best, and I hope full hardheartedly that he pushes through his injury trouble and has a successful career.

Sure these are professional hockey players but they are also human beings. These guys will have joint issues and whatever his concussions will leave him with till they die. I hope he finds a second life in Detroit and gets paid so he never has to work again in his life. get your money, and don't get hurt
