LG, we get it. In your opinion no one is as good in D/W and since THIS is a thread about W/P And there are many who beg to differ about the music carrying D/W, why don't you do us all a favour and take your negative posts elsewhere. Please.

It boggles me the amount of people who come into uber threads to criticize. I'm not sure they understand the point of an uber thread.

I loved Kaitlyn and Andrew's gala program so much.. it reminds me of Joannie's tribute skate to her mom at the Gala during the Olympics though, which makes me sad.

Weaver & Poje will win the silver medal at Worlds next year behind Virtue & Moir. A 1-2 finish for Canada.

D/W are not "carried" by their music either, which is definitely the impression I got with W/P.

Interesting - because that's the impression I got with D&W... :shuffle:

Well that would be very nice, but I wouldn't make any predictions at this point in time; however, it's not an impossibillity for certain, but they definitely are challengers for the bronze (as they were this year). I definitely would like to see 3 North American teams on the podium (2 of them Canadian of course ;)).

The 4th place team in 2008 was Belbin/Agosto. They won silver the following year.

The 4th place team in 2009 was Davis/White. They won silver the following year.

Maybe W/P follow them as opposed to P/B, who were fourth two years running.

Thanks for that. I could see history repeating itself.

Oops, I meant to say "May W/P follow them," not "Maybe."

I would love a 1-2 finish next year. Hopefully with programs as good as the ones W/P had this season.

Love Weaver and Poje but still cannot believe they will likely win a world medal before Poirier...

What a difference a few years can make!

It's truly incredible! I wouldn't have expected this to happen just two years ago.

I know they didn't get the medal they deserved (not that P&B didn't deserve theirs), but did they at least receive some cash for coming in 4th, and if so, how much does a 4th placement get. I don't keep track of these things but certainly some $$$ would help with their training/living costs.

I would like to see the Short Dance & Free Dance split into two different competitions.
That way W/P would have won Gold in the Free Dance :D

Do you think there's any chance W/P would stay on until after Sochi? Not sure I've really heard them discuss their 'plan' but it would be nice if they did. At least for a one or two more seasons to get that World Title.

At the rate they're continuing to improve, and how much it seems they love to skate and compete, I'd say it is VERY likely they will continue. That's, of course, mostly wishful thinking.

I have mixed feelings. W/P had much better programs this year than last and have boosted their musical interpretation a lot. They have gotten their levels up and are maxing them out so they are good there. Plus they are so freakin hot, how can you not root for 'em?

But two things concern me:
1. I don't find them to be as adept on the blade as some other pairs in terms of handling complex footwork and choreo. Their edges are deep but they seem to be careful skaters to me. Their twizzles are careful and slow compared to others. They have compensated by upping their musical interpretation.
2. The top 8 or so entries are bunching up in the marks and I'm not 100% sure why. The devil in me thinks it's the gradual process to create a changing of the guard in dance. I say that diplomatically. I don't think we'll see 3 NA teams on the podium in Sochi so something's going to give. I just have a feeling that W/P will be passed and likely by a Russian team if not also by others.
