Really no need for it in Risto's case. This isn't like a kid coming out of juniors whose toughest competition to date was maybe playing in the WJC. He's been playing professional hockey against men since he was 16 in a league that's comparable to the AHL. I don't think another year in Finland would kill him, but he's earned his spot.
