I was a big Erat fan from day one. I remember meeting the family that hosted him in Canada when he played for Red Deer back in his rookie season. They said he practically carried that team thru the WHL playoffs, and loved him like family.

Not being 'the' guy was a big adjustment I'm sure. I think he has really good potential-- I don't think a PPG avg is unreasonable. His puck handling is solid. I supect if he could get develop more upper body strength his play would really blossom-- and he does need the right linemates. Orszagh and Legwand compliment his skillset very well. I think they make a killer 2nd line, something this team has to have to compete.
