Jenner looks like a duck with clipped wings, running across an arizona asphalt runway in July, not sure whether he's got to lay an egg or take a ****. It's ugly. Like a hyperactive duck waddle in which all the wrong parts are moving a million miles an hour while his clumsy feet just kind of scrape behind him as if he had two broken ankles but was so high on bath salts he didn't realize either the agony or the immobility.
I'm not sold that he can be a full time top 6 forward and for me it comes down to skating. He has work to do. I would consider it average at best. I think that might even be a bit generous to be honest.
