I feel Barch keeps losing his fights because of a poor 'basic' defence. Time after time, he doesn't establish a solid left grip and it gives his opponents full range of motion to throw their right. Peluso looks like a decent fighter but Barch's technique (lack of) just made him look good.
Barch is tough, but no, he never wins a fight. Ever. He takes on a guy I ve never heard of but apparently is a world beater because he landed every consequential punch and left Barch bleeding everywhere. I keep saying the Devils should've kept Boulton and Janssen but hey. They'll do what the like. And what they like is an enforcer who never wins a fight. Edge Peluso.
I didn't even notice that Peluso was picked up by the Jets... good for him and good for fans of hockey fights because he is a real good fighter. Barch is not the fighter he was last year, I would like to see the Devils bring Janssen back up.
love that Peluso went w/the classic elbow grab and threw theuppercuts early,.. too many guys go for the collar now and (imo) just hope to score big... dude had a strategy to go w/his anger and took a W form an NHL vet.. say what you want about Barch being 0-5, but the guy knows how compete and is NO pushover...
hope to see A.P. get in some more tilts this year for the Jets instead of 'Hair Party' Thorburn... #14 w/the 'need for stitchin' W.
