It's not like she/her federation could've afforded a first-class choreographer for a junior. At least she'll be noticed because her choreo is done by a currently top-rate skater. Thanks for the link though, I've missed this entry. Indeed it seems he's doing the actual choreo. Weell, to be honest he skated for what he didn't like constantly when he was paired with Mukhortova, so no wonder he wants to have more choice now. Plus it's not like Maxim himself is a talentless skater with no artistry whatsoever. They both gain a lot from the partnership, IMO.
