If I was making the choice and not one of those can't miss guys, I'd go NCAA, and get an education. You can go to some really excellent schools for (essentially) free. Facilities will be top notch too.
So yeah. Odds are, that
even if you're really good at your current level, you're going to need to plan for a life after hockey.
The NCAA is probably the best route for that.
Keep in mind if you are really good you will likely not complete your college education so this point is mute.
