That's what I meant when I said he reacts to players, when he has the puck he waits for them to commit to playing the body or the puck and reacts accordingly with a deke. Defensively, he also plays less man coverage and more zone, and is more prone to pick off a pass then to throw a hit. Alternatively, Shinkaruk makes the decision first and forces the defender to react, and on defense is more prone to coming at the player with the puck and forcing mistakes due to pressure.
