    She could see herself dance with mister Hubbell or Sorensen not so long ago. :lol:
    If a talented dancer like Asher Hill were available some day, I am sure she would pick up the phone. ;)

    Harvey/Gagnon are not competing this season, and according to their ISU bios, Gagnon is even 4cm taller than Poirier (176-180), which means at least he's not shorter. Crone is listed at 160 vs. Harvey's 166.

    Gagnon, if he's still skating, would be prize to go after among the (presumably) available Canadian male dancers.

    YES!

    Asher Hill is amazing and as much as I love Ralph/Hill, Kharis is clearly the weakest link in that team.

    Crone/Hill could be incredible.

    US dancer Nicholas Traxler has already retired at least twice, yet I saw his name again on one of the summer comp rosters. Unless he retired because of injury, perhaps he could be convinced to unretire.

    I wish Vanessa all the best. I did not realize it was Paul (and maybe the coach) who initiated the breakup.

    I wonder if pairs would be an option for her. If she has a 2A and 3T, I think she would be fantastic!

    I don't believe Crone has either at this point. She also has no pairs experience that I'm aware of. Singles might be doable, though a long shot. Pairs is probably out of the question.

    I do hope she finds the best solution for herself, and that we'll see her compete again.

    Singles is "doable" without a 2A and a 3T? Soooo...Crone has a 3Z, 3L, 3A, 3S? Maybe even a quad? FANTASTIC!

    She did go for 2A as a junior skater. With training, maybe she could get a couple of harder jumps - though as I said, it is a long shot. But getting said jumps while also learning pairs skills would be a tall order for anyone.

    Vanessa's 2A was only about 50% reliable when she competed singles back in 2008. She needs to get that jump back before focusing on triples. I don't see her getting any more than 3S and/or 3T, which wouldn't make her competitive at the senior level.
