That's a major concern for me.

I know he missed some time last year and maybe that has slowed his progress a bit, but it shouldn't have hurt his skating this much. Last year he looked big, quick, agile, strong, powerful.

This year he looks kind of clumsy.

The only thing I can think of besides injury would be the fact that maybe he grew an inch or two over the summer.
One thing I'm banking is he'll have a stronger finish than start, much like the entire Oil King team. It will take a bit to find themselves and figure out how to work with each other. I'll get my first look of the season at the Oil Kings and Reinhart on Friday.
