I hope you're right about Rattie. I have trouble seeing him seamlessly make the jump from the WHL to the NHL, but maybe the playoff run will help.
Here is some more stuff on Rattie from Hockey's Future
Much like Nugent-Hopkins, Rattie is adept at locating open ice in the attacking zone. He is the epitome of a player with a “nose for the net”. What makes Rattie most valuable is his obvious thought process on the ice. He is not a powerful skater, yet he seems to be able to hang on to the puck when it matters most. A versatile forward and a consistent special teams player.
Rattie will play his third season in the WHL for the Portland Winterhawks and will be expected to lead the team's offense this year. He should get the opportunity to play for Team Canada at the 2012 WJC tournament in Ufa, Russia.
This season, Rattie surpassed the 100-point mark for the second year in a row, tallying 48 goals and 62 assists. He missed much of the December schedule while toiling in Russia with Team Canada at the 2013 WJC. Rattie, from Airdrie, Alberta, has played over 320 games in the WHL, all with the Portland Winterhawks.
Rattie played alongside Brendan Leipsic (NAS) and Nic Petan (2013), the pair that tied for the WHL scoring title with 120 points each.
Selected by the St. Louis Blues in the second round, 32nd overall, at the 2011 NHL Draft, Rattie was signed to an entry-level contract last June. Rattie is a top prospect in the Blues system, along with young talented forwards like Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko, two players who share Rattie’s WJC pedigree.
Note: Rattie is leading the Winterhawks in the playoffs. He broke the career WHL playoff goal scoring record this season and has put up 33 points (17G 16A) in this season's playoffs. The next closest scorer is 8 points behind him. If he isn't ready to make the jump now, when he turns 21 in 2014, when will he? Especially after back to back 100 points seasons and back to back 33 point playoff seasons - while this season's playoffs are still going.
