    Mr. Lambiel will have to learn CoP with new additions after the ISU Congress. :cool:

    Dai is a guy choreographers salivate over. I don't blame them.

    Is this a real thing or just a rumour? Wasn't he supposed to work with Shae-Lynn? (skaters change their coaches/choreographers so fast it's not easy to keep up. )
    It would be a bit surprising. As great as Stephane's programs are he doesn't have much experience working with other skaters and putting competitive program for this level is quite a responsibility. But it must be not difficult to work with someone so talented and Takahashi is at the point he can afford some artisitic risks.
    Oh well, we will see... At least he got away from Morozov.. :scream:

    Even with Morosov, Takahashi has shown that he could have made almost anything work.

    Lambiel's LP at Vancouver was rather on the boring and the ordinary side, so I wouldn't get too excited yet.

    It is true. Daisuke will be in Switzerland in two weeks.

    Well, don't you think that was because he was fighting against time and his body in Vancouver? I think he got psyched out in a way I've never seen him be. It was quite odd in Vancouver. We all know what Lambiel is capable of when he's on. I actually thought his Tango LP earlier last season was way better than the one he showed in Vancouver.

    The way he skated that tango program was one of the best men's programs I ever saw....the first time had the passion of newness, the second one was more technically accurate...I wish he had kept it for the Olympics.

    Wow, how exciting :rollin: !

    (It's funny, because I "saw" Lambiel as a choreographer for the upcoming season, but, regarding the skater, I was thinking about... Joubert :lol:)

    Thanks. Interesting. :cool:

    One thing to admire about Daisuke is that he always challenges himself. He might have gone to Lori Nichol like everybody else or stick with what worked for him.

    I hope there will be some footage from Japanese TV.

    I can't wait to see this!

    I hope we'll also be seeing some new exhibition programs choreographed by Stephane for Stephane.

    Although Stéphane definitely wasn't at his best in Vancouver, but even with that performance one could see that "La Traviata" was one of the most beautifully choreographed programs of this season. And maybe not only this one.

    You really think that Lori Nichol could not have created something special that worked for Takahashi....? She has created wonderful and different kind of programmes for various skaters, in my opinion.

    Anyway, both Lambiel and Takahashi are among my favourite skaters, so it will be exciting to see what Lambiel will create for him.

    By the way, was Daisuke the one who asked Stéphane to coreograph his program?

    I meant she's a safe choice because she mass produces standard CoP friendly programs and this is what the judges want to see. There will be changes of the rules again. Stephane is not an established choreographer and I have no idea what will come out of this. But I guess it's just a try. Funny, they were fellow competitors and direct rivals just a few months ago. It's great they are able to work on something together. That's sports spirit.
