In the spirit of tempering expectations, Rattie has never, consistently, looked like Jaden Schwartz, but he has shown flashes.

Earlier in the season, when he was more physical, it was easy to see the comparisons, but he's adjusted his play to suit his current capability. And that demonstrates a decent level of "hockey IQ".

His tendency was to be physical, but he was discouraged. Once he gains strength, he will, again, tend to be physical.
