Plain and simple. As long as someone can create the offense, he can put the puck in the net. He plays a similar game to how Iginla plays now. He can bury it, but someone else has to create it. Iginla used to be able to create and finish. I don't think Rattie will ever be that type of scorer.
Ok a small miscalculation, but in 24 games without Sven during the regular season, Rattie put up 17 goals, 23 assists for 40 points. That's good for a 115 point pace over his 69 games played. With those numbers, it easily proves that Rattie would have done just as well even if he didn't have Sven at all. Calgary fans can stop with how Sven made Rattie and how Rattie won't be anything without Sven. The season before, they produced at similar clips too. This whole Rattie will never make it by Flames fans is getting old and tired.
