    I think it is early to tell who will finish where when looking at the teams ranked 4th through 8th at last year's worlds - Weaver/Poje struggled with levels in their free dance and need to rework the middle section to compete this season and that is why they finished behind Bobrova/Soloviev - they beat them in the short dance at both grand prix events.

    Agreed. Equally, I/K at NHK had a level 1 YP sequence, low level twizzles & deduction for time & extended lifts, and C/L at TEB had low level YP sequences. All of the couples behind the top 3 have a lot of room left for improvement and it's far too early to be able to make a call on how things will shake out for the rest of the season.

    Yes - but it's not like Bobrova and Soloviev are out partying and not working. They will hopefully fix their YP levels and Staviski said that Zhulin will give them a new ending which will be more exciting (for the SD).

    With Worlds in Canada I wouldn't worry about W&P. In fact, since I expect the Russian dancers to get a boost at GPF, W&P are probably better off not going, lest they be slotted in behind both.

    Curious to see what I&K have done. Adding music to the vocal part is a no-brainer since they almost got a deduction for not having an audible beat. I certainly hope there's more changes coming.

    Any way you look at it s/s did better but I/k just made dumb mistakes that got deductions and their poor pattern on one polka. got to be because the free dance and team is facing incredible turmoil.

    Wow! 4 and 3 is low?? And they got 3 and 3 at Skate Canada. You must have confused it with FD where they got 2 and 2 on their step sequences at TEB (and that most likely was because they were uneasy and too cautious after Luca's fall on the twizzles).

    I luv that B&S and C&L are going to the grand prix final, just have a feeling that I & K are prob feeling a bit entilted if thats the correct word to use, I love their open and free skating kind of reminds me of Bourne & Kraatz in a way but more to the point its not them its their overmarked programs that i disagree with getting them to the final !!!

    I can't read Russian, but the google translate doesn't sound so bad. She had food poisoning, which explains why she looked physically ill. I am glad they got through the program and even skated better than at CoR. I like to see that fight in them.
