Isn't Shinkaruk more Patrick Kane-lite than Claude Giroux-lite? I thought he was more of a finisher than a playmaker.

I think you only trade up when you believe a truly special sort of talent is available that you absolutely need to have, or when a guy just perfectly addresses a pressing organizational need. I just don't see Shinkaruk fitting into either one of those categories, though I wouldn't fault the Flyers for taking him if he falls into their laps.
