How do I adjust the sink function in Arc Hydro?

Hello!  I'm trying to extract a stream network using Arc Hydro.  Performing the sink function results in a usable DEM.  My problem is this.  Using the resulting sink DEM to create flow direction and stream definition grids results in straight stream segments where there should be bends in the stream.  The stream network is not accurate or usable because of this.  Is there a way to adjust the sink function to fill in just minor sinks, but still maintain the integrity of the actual stream shape in the original DEM?  Please see attachment for an example.  Thanks.
