If we do not trade our number 1 pick or trade down and our pick turns out to be 10 or 11 is anyone adverse to Hunter Shinkaruk? Think Mat Read at a higher level; faster, slightly bigger, extremely high hockey IQ, and seems like a really good student of the game. He is captain and goes against the best D men. He would add speed to compliment Giroux on the top line. Though one draftnik says he can be taken off the puck, but the highlights I have seen, he gets back up and gets the puck back........he is soooo quick and soooo shifty. I know everyone wants a D man, but after the first few [ if all the really good ones are taken before 8-11], it pretty much evens out until around 40-50th pick. Though for forwards it seems lots of people like Anthony Mantha. Though the speediest dude, super quick hands in the Q is Laurent Dauphin....no question....but can be taken off the puck but unlike Hunter who gets mad as heck and retreives the puck he lost, Laurent does not seem to pursue and kind of gives up.
