No offense to the kid, he could end up being a solid NHLer. There is a strong contingent of Flames fans who put way too much stock into 'chemistry' (in Junior, of all things), though.

I see the original proposal as: confirmed young above average 3rd line C (possible top 6 C) + mid-aged top pairing defenceman for ageing top 6 C + potential 2nd line winger. The value just doesn't look good to me at all. Especially because I don't have a ton of faith in Rattie's transitionability to the NHL.
