Good for Ranta. I’ve always said that if they want you it might be your only chance so you gotta take it. Anything could happen, injury is a big one but the whole time you are trying to make it to the Pro’s it’s all about how can you do it. It hardly ever pays off to stay and the risks are high of losing your shot. You have to go when your value is high. In Rantas case his value went way up. For Casey he was already rated highly and there wasn’t a benefit to stay. Even if another year playing D1 would help, where is the better talent to train with? It’s a no brainer.
