Here is how Frank @ the Daily News graded some players if you want to compare and contrast:


GAME GRADES: Just a couple quick hits from Sunday night’s action:

Nick Cousins - Very active in the play, controlled the puck and helped create offensive chances. Was not noticeably unreliable in the defensive zone, which had been his knock. Finished with one shot on net and was even for the night.

Scott Laughton - Did a lot of little things right that help make a team successful - things that don’t always show up on the scoresheet. Helped get the Flyers out of trouble in their own end on numerous occasions. Decent on face-offs.

Hal Gill: The veteran tryout seemed just a step slow, even playing against a Leafs roster that barely made it to the veteran minimum for preseason. Slid and took himself out of the play on a 2-on-1, which resulted in a goal for Nazem Kadri. Passes weren’t crisp coming out of the zone. Likely a true longshot to earn a contract.

Erik Gustafsson: After a strong end to last season and a trip to the World Championships, Gustafsson had a rough start to the first half of Sunday’s game. He lost a clear footrace to Mason Raymond for a shorthanded breakaway goal. He also made a boneheaded turnover just inside the Flyers’ blue line, which resulted in Toronto’s second goal.
