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.
I agree with their top 3 picks as being golden. They are Butler type players and I think that Mackenzie will strive.

Sudbury dropped the ball by picking Capobianco 7th overall,as the kid will get exposed , with no support around him.

I know Tiger will not like to read this, but we all know why kids like Capobianco and McCool went 6th and 7th. I still believe that Capobianco was picked because he will be moved, and is part of a bigger plan.
