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.
If that is the case, don't you think that skill set benefits a playmaker like couturier. BTW kane is a great playmaker and finisher. Only Crosby imo rivals him in the ability to do both.
