For me, Shinkaruk is all about potential. While he wasn't the best on the ice, or the most offensive, elusive, or fastest, I thought he was one of the best skaters in terms of balance and directional change. Add that to his ability to think the game quickly and above-average offensive skills, you have a prospect that is just good.
But add a dash of muscle (say 20lbs?), then you can have a very elite player.
It is still work to be done, so I don't have him in the same tier as Barkov, but I think the potential is there.
