This guy is going to have a massive homer fanbase now.
Different skillsets, Flames don't need a Jenner type as much as they a Gaudreau home run. Jenner as great attributes and qualities to be power forward and the floor of being a 3rd line checker. But Gaudreau has the possibility of being a high end scoring forward, something Flames need more.

Granted I haven't seen Jenner much outside of WJC, but his statline doesn't scream scoring forward to me. In fact what I've seen from the WJC leads me to believe he may have issues scoring in the NHL and might be seen more as a bottom six guy than a top six. To me, the flames have a similiar player in Max Reinhart already, maybe with less power.
