    You hit the nail on the head bbken

    "I just feel that they hold back, not in their skating because they give that their all, but in their emotions."

    Each season they seem to improve one aspect of thier skating or another. They have the speed, the power. They were lacking in the emotions dept. for sure. I guess when skating you are trying to evoke a feeling in the audience. I feel their power and speed but I don't feel real passion between them.

    Meryl seems like a reserved person in real life and her expression on the ice is dramatic. But for me it's really up to male skater to convince the audience of passion in a romantic number. Tessa expresses her self similiar to Meryl (IMO). It's Scott who sells the passion by the way he looks at her. Charlie could step it up in the passion dept. I think. Maybe being in love he'll be better at it now? Only time will tell.

    If every dance team's expression were alike, though, the whole thing would get boring. Sure Scott and Tessa do a great job on that, and it would be nice if Charlie and Meryl could work on their connection and expressiveness. But I still don't want them to become a carbon copy of Scott and Tessa in that respect.

    I don't think thta a btter conection betwen them and better body and facial expression would make them a carbon copy of Tessa and Scott. This would only make them better skaters, I mnet, with the complete thing.

    I really don't know where you all see the passion in Tessa and Scott. Sometimes I seriously feel like punching them for that delighted looks on their faces, full of innocence and sweetness, like the whole freakin world was so perfect and all about butterflies and rainbows They surely have a great connection, but passion?
    on the other hand, I agree Meryl and Charlie still need to learn how to express real emotions on ice. Their energy and power is wonderful, but still it would be nice to see some more emotions shown by them in the slower parts of their dances.

    about Tanith and Charlie becoming an ice dance team - I think Meryl and Charlie are a wonderful match, not sure if Tanith would be able to handle Charlie's wildness the way Meryl does And Meryl's expression is still better than Tanith's IMO. Plus, D/W look awesome together - I love it when partners in teams differ in appearance, B/A had that trump as well. I hate it when teams consist of people who look alike (Dubreil/Lauzon - gosh, they were like siblings, I couldn't believe they were a couple ).

    I think it is highly unlikely from this recent interview at ~03:13.

    I think Tanith is far too tall to skate with Charlie in eligible competition under COP. They wouldn't be able to do the lifts that are necessary to be competitive.

    Ben's only slightly taller than Charlie, but I think Charlie is more stocky.

    Well, for COP, Ben is a bit short for Tanith, hence the back problems.
