Fortunately, I don't think we'll have to make that decision as I doubt we drop far enough in the draft to where Shinkaruk is the best player available (unless the Oilers really don't like the second tier defencemen like Pulock, Ristolainen, and Zadorov).
I absolutely agree if Shinkaruk is the BPA we should take him, but where we will be drafting there is no way he is.
