They don't send down one-way players unless they really have to, and in this case they also save almost half a million dollars. The choice is easy..
I like OKT a little bit, but its more of a difference in styles. Bartulis is just overall a much better player. He does have some offensive chops that OKT lacks, but I would venture to say that he's better in his own end as well. He doesn't over power people but he plays well positionally and makes good decisions with the puck. Combine that with superior physical skills and Bartulis is just a better option no matter what the staff's preference is.
