Bärtschi played a better all-round game. Skated very well, always worked hard, very good playmaking and could score goals.

Rattie had better offensive instincts, but wasn't as skilled and didn't really show as much tenacity which is probably why people made more about his size.

Either way, those who tried to argue that Rattie was a product of Bärtschi were idiots.
