Cousins reads plays better, makes crisper passes, shoots well for someone his age. His balance is much improved, and he goes into the boards with ENERGY! He's also a chatter box, but in a way like Giroux more than carcillo ( he will **** you off THEN score)

Both nice prospects, but one is a 7.5B and the other is a 8-8.5B
Maybe Cousins will be a more "impactful" player, in that he'll be more noticeable on the ice because of his antics and his ability to do the dirty work, but it seems to me that Laughton is clearly the better player.
