Lappy stated that this camp is not to earn a roster spot but instead to ask questions and grow as a player. They are invited for their own sakes to learn new skills and new practice techniques. They come to "work on stuff there isn't time for during the regular season.
That said, I feel that it is much more than that. As was stated here (or possibly twitter) Rinaldo basically has his roster spot because of this camp. Last year this camp earned Noebels a contract. This is also the camp that earned Hostetter a contract. So yeah maybe its not for a roster spot but it isn't simply to ask questions either.
As for the three you mentioned I'm sure they will all be at rookie camp with Laughton and Cousins being returned to their junior teams at the completion of camp. I wouldn't be surprised to see Laurisden at the main camp and get a preseason game or two before being assigned to the Phantoms.
