Maybe, but the Flyers have plenty of Shinkaruks (who's a center) when you look at Giroux, Schenn, Couturier and Laughton.
The difference between BPA and Need this year is not that great at all. This is the perfect year to draft a need.
I am not a Shinkaruk fan, i think he will be a good NHL player but IMO I would rather have RR, he has top pairing potential and could be a bigger, better version of Niklas Kronwall but I understand what you are saying.
