    From the very beginning through at least my first Olympics, I would want to learn from Frank. If I had to switch from my coach at the local mall after five or six years, I would want Krall or Orser for singles and Nicks for pairs.

    In an alternate universe, there could be worse things than ending up in Mishin's stable, even if I had little choice in the matter.

    From Mishin's stable you may actually have a chance of winning the OGM. :)

    Morozov of course!

    Just kidding.

    I think I'd need a grumpy old man to kick my ass into line, a kind of father figure my unruly self wouldn't mess with. That means Mishin or Carroll.
    But I want choreo by Lambiel or Buttle!

    Im pretty sure that Tatiana Tarasova taught Irina Rodnina/Alex Zaitsev and maybe Gordeeva/grinkov.

    so she must be pretty good.

    Kulik, Orser, and for choreography / politics Tarassova.

    She did coach R&Z, but she only coached G&G during their pro years, I believe.

    Mark Mitchell or Ken Congemi. I wouldn't win anything with either as my coach, both are far too:swoon: for me to concentrate. That's OK, I just want a coach who is :grope:
