I know your a Sudbury fan, Ill be honest it didnt make sense selecting Capobianco that early. I can see him being a lock for the team given his high selection, I cant imagine him not struggling in Year 1. Not with the puck on his stick, the other parts, like winning battles and dealing with aggressive forecheckers. Gaining 15 pounds in the summer is important for him. That will improve his overall defensive game.
Sudbury should have taken the best player available which was Mitch Stephens. Cappy is far too weak to play as a 16 yr old. He is a very smart and talented player but could get thrown around like a rag doll.
