barch weighs about 190 -- gives up at least 45 pounds to fridge. kudos to barch for always stepping up. fridge did ok against a much lighter opponent. but i still question his ability to hang with the big boys anymore. this one was a draw.
Shots were about even but you gotta love Barch, man he's not big I'd say barely a middleweight but he's not shy to go with the heavies. You gotta have a lot of respect for a guy like that. Laraque destroyed him but Fedoruk had his hands full. Draw
I am a die hard Wild fan, and I love my enforcers, but Fridge did nothing in this fight to cheer for. He didn't attempt throwing too many punches, so there in itself doesn't give him much chance at winning. Barch threw a lot of punches, but not many that were even close to landing squarely. I don't know what fight you voters were watching, but I would clearly give the decision to Barch, even if there was minimal damage. He was clearly the aggressor.
Decent scrap; gotta call it a draw, doesn't seem like anyone had an edge though Fedoruk had good position.
I'm glad to see Fridge find a niche for himself with Minnesota. It would have been sad to see one of the toughest guys in the league just fade away into the minors, and that looked like it was going to happen for a while there.
Watch how low Fedoruk keeps his arms/elbows!!! He's totally defenseless. He's going to get himself killed some day!! He's got to be the worst fighter in the League.
Draw. 7.8 for the pairs figure-skating routine.
