This is true for the qualification to SEL and some of the last regular season games. Leksand seemed to juggle their lines every other game and Forsberg has played on the 1st line as well as the 4th line (which is kind of strange) so he can't be completely credited for Raffls point total (Raffls most consistent partner was Pär Edblom).

Anyway, realistically I see Raffl as a AHL-player to begin the season and in case of injuries he'll get a chance to prove himself in the show.
