    Nix all the above choices; it's obvious that Yu-Na's been doing all those shows with Michelle because they've been finalizing coaching plans. :p

    I, too, am leaning towards Yu-Na going pro soon, but if she does decide to continue competing, I've a feeling her new coach will be Russian (and a prominent name at that). I don't think it's just coincidence that her team picked Orser right out of the blue.

    That's your hope for Yuna?

    Maybe we need a separate pool for hall of fame skating mamas.:shuffle:

    Russia has plenty of talented juniors. Having a Russian coach while being non-Rusky won't tip any scale. I think she picked Canadian coach because she had spent every summer at Mariposa and Colorado.

    No new coach, no turning pro, just another Michelle Kwan

    Oh please, he'd try to have both :p! They are only like the 2 most beautiful women in figure skating right now.

    ITA about the TAT and Morozov program - that would be something to see!

    No, I meant Robin Wagner was banned. I'm not sure about the details though.

    I voted for "other" because purple wasn't listed as a choice.

    I believe it was a suspension and that the suspension is over. She's listed on the Ice House website as one of the coaches.

    Didn't she allegedly try to poach somebody else's skater?

    Wasn't she with Elene at the Olympics, though? I'm at the Ice House all the time and she was never noticeably absent for long periods of time..

    I don't think Yuna's thinking about Sochi yet. If she's aiming for Sochi, she might switch to a russian coach in 1~2 years time. For now, I predict she'll move to the States, find a coach there, be more close to Kwan....all of this for her future plan to become pro and do shows in the US (right now she's only known among people in korean town in LA).
    I don't think she'll go back to Korea. The media and fans are too crazy there.

    Anyhow, hope we'll get to see her in Worlds and many more.

    Rafael Aratunian was Michelle's coach towards the end. He was also one of Jeff Buttle's coaches and worked wtih Mao for a while as well.

    My vote is for one of the coaches in Barrie like Lee Barkell. She's probably extremely used to living and training in Canada, and with Barrie being less than an hour away from Toronto, and also an elite training centre (she'd be training alongside Nobunari Oda) it makes sense. Plus, aside from Nobu, Lee doesn't have many top of the world-class skaters right now. Lee's skaters often also work with David Wilson. Lee is also the former coach of Jeff Buttle who at one time choreographed for Yu Na.

    Thanks I know
    Just a bit annoyed each time those russkies names spelled incorrectly (even if Rafael ArUtunian is an Armenian). Why not bother and google? :rolleyes:

    Which coach would seem to be the biggest pushover? Whoever it is, should be prepared for an abrupt break-up with lots of stringing along beforehand as evidenced by her previous coaches, IMG, IB Sports, and now Orser.

    ;)

    How about Carol Heiss-Jenkins? People seem to leave her without much ado.

    ^ I don't think that Heiss falls into the "pushover" category. On the contrary, she's always struck me as a pretty tough cookie.

    Yeah, that was the one kink with my choice.

    How about Scott Williams? Another Kwan footstep for Kim to follow.
