You guys are giving Barch a bad rap. He's done what we needed from him and is as skilled an enforcer as we've had. He hasn't scored yet but he's played well. Especially on a game like tonight's against Philly, I'm all for him breaking the lineup.
Compared to Boulton and Janssen, Barch has been great. I have yet to scream at the TV, "wtf are you doing you idiot" because of anything he did. Even the few times he's gotten caught out there when the opposing team puts it's top line out and he's not done anything glaringly awful in those situations and that's all you can ask of a guy like Barch.
