    Any suggestions?
    Someone in Toronto/ Canada?
    Someone elsewhere in the US?

    Will he also change his Choreographer?

    So many questions.....

    I don't think he needs to change choreographer. Whatever people want to say, Lori is one of the best in the world, and she seems to understand Chan's ability and choreo based on his skill. I don't mind him using someone for the SP thought. I'd love him to use his Gala number, with a bit of tweaking as his new SP.

    +1 ;)

    (though i still love Lori...I just like skaters to try a couple of different choreographers)

    Sarah Kawahara might be another good one

    Haven't you heard? TAT has moved on to Masquerade Waltz, Liebestraum, and Rachmaninov's Prelude in C# minor. :D

    Patrick would rock "The Bells of Moscow." At the very least, he would ring them...

    Jeff's choreo for his exhibition was great, but I've heard that Lori 'gets' him like no other - things like knowing that he prefers certain steps into certain jumps to help him get secure and feel prepared for it - I'm sure Jeff (or whoever) could learn that, but he's worked well with Lori for so long.

    Whatever happens, at least the timing of the split is better than the timing of his last split - he has a full season before the O's season now, instead of how it was during the last O's season. Hopefully he finds a good fit.

    I'm thinking though that he might stay with just Johnson in Colorado and then have someone in Toronto who will work on the more technical aspect with him, like Orser.

    I'm sure he will. He, above all, wants to stay on top of things. Stupid, he is not, and neither are his parents. I talked to them while waiting for Patrick at Skate Canada a 3 years ago and they seem to be a very nice couple with his best interests at heart.....also it will be easier for him if he wants to take some university courses there in Toronto, and the family which has been living apart for quite some time will get to spend more time together....That, in itself, is motivation for the change.:)

    Will never happen, but the specter is kinda frightful ... :eek:

    If it did happen and Nikolai gave Chan what he's been giving Amodio and Alena (God forbid!), not even Pat's SS could overcome such disastrous posing and ott gesturing taking the place of good choreography.

    about choreography - maybe mr Lambiel does something for him :) one of his favourite skaters.
    probably wishful thinking... lots of suitable choreographers available: Browning, Wilson, Buttle.

    ITA that Kurt Browning would be a great fit for him. That combined with Brian Orser?

    Me 22222222! My ideal: Tech coach- Kurt, Choreos-Lori (LP) + JB (SP), and of course we all his dance coach will be Kathy.
    Anyone hear anything yet? I assume not since Patrick is still busy performing and travelling since WTT?

    I like where you're going with this. She was placing transitions in skaters programs long before they were scored. Since he already can handle this type of choreography Sarah might be a brilliant choice. Also, she is super creative and super not over used.

    It will definitely not be Orser, since he now has Hanyu. The choices seem so limited in the Toronto area. He already tried Shin Amano and the Mariposa bunch a few years ago when Mr. Colson passed away. Hopefully, someone will be announced soon.
