Not saying it won't happen, but I would be shock to see Shinkaruk getting traded.
Not sure I agree with your assessment. To me, their top end is fine. Their line of Nicholls-Stransky-McColgan has been fantastic (up until Shane's recent injury). Nicholls is among league leaders in goals and all three players are now above a point per game.

To me, their depth scoring has been the part that's missing.

Guys like Sutter, Burns, Walker have been put in a spot to provide secondary offence and simply haven't.

Adding more offensive guys would definitely help and it would allow guys like Sutter and Burns to stick to 3rd line checking roles more than anything else.
