Laughton is clearly a better pro prospect than Cousins. Cousins has quite a bit of work to do for him to crack an NHL squad, and it should be interesting to see if his offense translates to the AHL this year. His skating is average, and his defense, while improved (and was necessary), still leaves a lot to be desired.

That being said, there's that old saying that the puck seems to find certain players, and he seems to fit that bill. He probably has better puck possession skills than Laughton and a higher offensive acumen, but Laughton is definitely the better, more well rounded forward who will almost certainly be a NHL regular.
