Never been much of a Barch, Ott, who(m)ever, fan...
but, to his credit...this time out, he fought a smart, tactical fight,
which, eventually, allowed him to end up with a slight edge,
over, a surprisingly ineffective, Vandermeer.
To my pleasant surprise, this was not the outcome I had expexted.
I like Barch and would take him on my team anyday. Fairly underated + as player. He's a good skater and does above average when dropping the gloves.
I liked that tug/pull - in technique that kept Vandy off balance. A nice change from the jersey jabs.
