No, not only Nodl versus Pinter, I meant Austrian players in general. Personally, I'd go for Lakos and the CBJ or Vanek and the Sabres. It'll mainly depend on Vanek's attitude to work on his fitness to make an impact in the NHL right away and evolve into a solid, high-scoring first or second liner on the team.

Nodl over Pinter? Hard to judge but I'd doubt that from what I saw 'til now (U20 WJC and U18 WJC). The question is: What is Nodl willing to bring in to reach top-level? Is he a tough, hard working competitor or "just" a talent with a decent skill level?
I go for Pinter because of his complete offensive package and the fact that he has great leadership abilities.This season should bring some clarity. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that both kids will succeed in the US making big careers.
