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.
Hard to find a comparison...would an slightly more offensively leaning Mike Richards be a decent one? A winger version of course.
