Being the same age (Nicastro actually 4 months older), IMO Lashoff has the edge at the moment having succesfully played in the AHL already. Right now is a tough time to judge Nicastro because he's coming off a very difficult final year of college. He could be better than Lashoff straight off the bat or he could have huge difficulties adjusting to the pro game. So, because of the uncertainty surrounding Nicastro, my take is that Lashoff has the edge. Though, you have to mention Nicastro being a right-handed shot which could get him PP time for example. Lashoff's "secret skill" is definitely his leadership abilities.
