But the Moskvina show will take place before the start of the GP series, and Plushy doesn't have any GP assignments anyway. Are skaters required to give a reason for not doing GPs these days? I mean, Miki and Yu-Na didn't, they just took time off. Evan Lysacek took a whole season off. So long as he's not bailing out on events to which he was assigned (as was the case with 2010 Worlds) why would it be an issue?

I'm surprised Plushy's not part of this, considering his link to Moskvina via Mishin; maybe he has a prior commitment? I also wonder how Brian Joubert ended up in this show - there seems to be no obvious reason.

I was just speculating he might want to stay on the safe side with it given his troubles last year.

As far as Joubert goes, he seems to be quite a regular of Russian ice shows when the show producers want to add non-Russian skaters to the cast. Or we can make this connection: Moskvina's skating partner was Alexei Mishin, Alexei Mishin was Alexei Yagudin's coach, Alexei Yagudin is Brian Joubert's idol. lol

You can say whatever you want about Brian and Johnny, but they totally won Russia over :D Not many people do.

An extraordinary cast! I'm sure that we'll eventually see videos of it. I sincerely hope that Moskvina skates not only with Mishin but also with Anton Sikharulidze, as she's done in recent shows. They even do lifts, death spirals, etc. This lady isn't afraid of anything, LOL!

IIRC Plushy is in rehab, after a surgery (may be surgeries). He may not want to risk his health by participating in a skating event.

of the show absolutely brilliant!:cheer2::cheer2: and if I was given to select members, I would have preferred to have been John and Kyoko:), but not Maria and Alexei, and then she could come to Sylvia:rollin:, in a show almost no girls, as I understand it, the participation of Irina question:shuffle:

I like the cast the way it is. I am disappointed that Plushy is not in it but I have already posted my guess for his absence (medical reason).

Given this tremendous cast, Ina & Zimmerman's absence doesn't bother me, even though they were coached by Tamara. I wouldn't assume that they were not INVITED; may be they are no longer skating? Ina quit skating long ago, I think.

This was just put together since June so I/Z probably have other commitments. I wouldn't take it as if they weren't invited either.

I thought John was coaching in Florida.

Plushy may or may not have been invited, but he still is recovering so that would probably the #1 he wouldn't be doing it. I'm sure he's not "afraid" of shows, he didn't get in trouble for just doing a show. If that were the case K/S and G/E would be allowed to do it either.

Sorry--should have worded my previous comment differently, since I have no way of knowing who was invited and who was not in the first place. Regardless, I think it would been nice if I&Z could be there with everyone else.

Looking at the list of skaters, it kind of makes me sad that Mishkutenok and Dmitriev broke up in the way that they did. To me, they will always be the quintessential Moskvina pair and Natalia M the quintessential Moskvina pair girl. Unforgettable. . ..

(By the way, no Bechke & Petrov or V&V, either. . .)

I am pretty sure B&P quit skating long ago, and V&V too. It may be nice if they just make an appearance though.

Yeah, it would have to be "special appearances by B&P and V&V" with them just coming out onto the ice or onto the stage to congratulate Moskvina. (I think they're all scattered now, aren't they? Don't know where Yelena Valova is now--she got married again, didn't she?--but isn't Denis Petrov coaching in China (with Chen Lu) and Elena Bechke coaching in the US? Is Vasiliev back in Chicago?)

I'm not sure if the purpose of her birthday celebration was to reunite her with all her past skaters. Although it would be great to see them again they are not lobsters who are together for life; they do move on after they are done competing. I'm just happy with the ones who can skate.

He says that today it was hard for him to wake up because he did so many 4T yesterday and skated his short program.
