So what should we know about Shinkaruk, Jfb and others who are familiar with his game.

I'd pass on him, I think.
One night you hear that he's amazing and the next you hear that he's afraid.

at this point, we may get stuck with him if we keep winning and end up with a pick 8-10

I agree I feel like the draft will go something along the lines of

Jones 1-2
MacKinnon 1-3
Drouin 2-4
Barkov 3-4
Monahan 5-7
Lindholm 5-7
Nichushkin 4-12
Nurse 7-10
Ristolainen 8-12
Shinkaruk 8-12

So if we're 8th-10th, we're looking at Nichushkin, Nurse, Ristolainen, or Shinkaruk most likely.

Yes, but only by marriage.
His whole family is very athletic though, as his dad was a WR for Hamilton of the CFL, his mom played CIS basketball, his older sister played basketball at Bowling Green and Oregon, and his younger sister will likely follow in the same path as she's already a standout at various levels internationally for Canada.
If you like athleticism, he's got it.
He's also somewhat local too, having grown up in Hamilton despite moving to the GTHL for a bit (the level of the GTHL is higher than the SCTA loop).

I like his development curve more than anything else though.
He went from looking like he was nothing more than hype to putting it together in a big way.

athleticism is good...and I'd take it.... But I want down right nasty mean mentality. Someone like an Adam Foote .... this organization needs more of that.

I wasn't saying that I place a lot of emphasis on athleticism, just commenting on it because you mentioned him being related McNabb.
I think it ends up being overrated.

Nurse has been pretty mean this season from what I've seen and had a reputation for it in his minor hockey days, in which he was incredibly vaunted.
He wasn't so much last year, but I guess we can chalk it up as him being a 16 year old playing the most difficult position to adjust to in a tough league to play in.

If you want someone that is purely a physical type, Zadorov is your guy.
He's not really someone I'm too high on though.

No interest with Shinkaruk at all. We've had enough of that kind of forward here. If we are at 8-10, I would take Nischuhkin if he was the best forward available. Either him or Nurse.

Is anyone as intrigued by Erne as me? I think we have enough center prospects in the pipeline. We need a big, top 6 power forward to put on the wing.

Not with our own pick, I'm not. If our top pick in this draft is a 2nd line winger, I may lose my ****.

Maybe with Minnesota's though.

He is arguably the best forward available, period. If we fell out of the top 3 and Nichushkin fell to us, it'd be insane not to take him.

The 2 years left on Nichushkin's KHL contract make me leery, but if we end up picking past the more obvious choices (Mac, Drouin, Jones, Barkov, Lindholm, Monahan), he and Nurse are the 2 guys I'd be looking at with that pick. Physically, Nichushkin is a beast for his age, and he is very skilled even if somewhat one-dimensional.

If Buffalo finishes outside the top three, I like Lindholm as the pick. Good combination of skill, high tempo play, and physical play.

Me too, if we don't get one of the big three(stupid trolls), I want Lindholm. I wouldn't mind Monahan, this team needs more Canadiens.

What are the knocks on Zadorov?
No offensive upside? Richard Smehlik 2.0?

Just curious, thanks.
