I think S/K can medal in OG ( Kavaguti/Smirnov have the Pang/Tong syndrome, they are aging ), they can also pass Bazarova/Larionov this season if they really do well, with good programs and already can out-jump Bazarova/Larionov :rofl:

It's way to early to say S/K will bypass B/L, they haven't won much yet and here she fell on a jump, put her hand down on a throw and had a messy double twist. Way to early to give them and Olympic medal unless it's in 2018.

I feel bad for K/S, I'm starting to think their Achilles heel is Moskvina.

I know its too early, I was just basing it their competitive track records
Bazarova's weakness has always been SBS jumps , S/K was their lift and twists
we'll see how the GP goes but like I said, If they can all skate clean they have a chance to surpass B/L by next season

You seem to be assuming that B&L won't have improved any...

I was so confused until I remembered Stepanova & Bukin stayed junior. :lol: I liked their take on the goose lift.

B&S Free dance (http://youtu.be/5TArHpBcYkg)
Earned a 92.94

I like it! the music cuts are scary beyond all reason, the concept is vague and it's not clean. BUT!!!- and it's huge for me- the body language is much edgier, they show me they can so smth. modern ( and I hope they keep going into modern direction), and I finally- finally!- notice and appreciate Soloviev. Everything can be improved upon, and yet I can root for them in this incarnation. Dance for me cannot be completely enjoyable with a partner utterly in the background both physically and emotionally ( well... unless it's Navka:)) and her eye-candy Kostomarov). I really appreciate Zhulin giving Soloviev an expressive part on ice, and I feel he is capable of fully growng into it.
Looking forward to seeing more of the this year. Music is weird though. Wish they'd taken something modern- edgy. I dunno. Philip Glass. Or some comtemporary ballet score.
