    I believe Theo Fleury used to take figure skating lessons as a kid before he focused on a hockey career, so we might actually be surprised by him (in a good way)....

    Yes!! Kat especially, she was hysterical, although I wouldn't be surprised if the CBC said no. As long as Doug Gilmore isn't back as a judge.

    I think the location brought out a lot of the hockey fans who wanted an opportunity to be in that rink again and relive old memories.. a certain amount of charm will be lost by not being there. Not much they can do about it though, so hopefully season 2 is equally as successful as the first!

    Due to last season's success they no longer really need the nostalgic Maple Leaf Gardens as a drawing card.

    I saw one interview where Paul Kariya said he figure skated when he was young. Whenever he retires, he might be a ringer for this (and at the very least some very welcome eye candy)....


    Anyone know what other NHL players have definitely figure skated before?

    Paul and Theo are both pretty tiny to be hockey players so it doesn't surprise me that they figure skated.

    I'm super excited about this. I really like Theo.. he's a fighter (I mean in life.. not in hockey haha) and he'll give it his all. I didn't get to see a whole lot last season because it didn't work with my schedule but I'm thinking we'll be downloading it this season if I'm working.

    I'm thinking Elena too, and wondering if Katia Gordeeva might also be a possibility.

    Am I the only person who is :scream: from Shae-Lynn's eyebrows? i don't mind thicker eyebrows but something there is very wrong...

    Wasn't Marie-France Dubreuil on this show last year? or was it another show?

    I'd be surprised if Elena B signed up for this, because she was lousy with David Pelletier on Thin Ice. If the two of them can't make it happen, I can't imagine that she can make a hockey player look good.

    Tanith would be a great addition to this show.

    Marie-France was on the show this year. A few of us chatted with her at CSOI and she mentioned that she will not be returning to the show this fall. She's just recently recovering from injuries stemming from last year's concussion so that could be the reason why.

    Understandable, but too bad for us - she was a joy to watch.
