    I'd be surprised if Elena B signed up for this, because she was lousy with David Pelletier on Thin Ice. If the two of them can't make it happen, I can't imagine that she can make a hockey player look good.

    Tanith would be a great addition to this show.

    Marie-France was on the show this year. A few of us chatted with her at CSOI and she mentioned that she will not be returning to the show this fall. She's just recently recovering from injuries stemming from last year's concussion so that could be the reason why.

    Understandable, but too bad for us - she was a joy to watch.

    Wasn't she on Ice Age or the other Russian celebrity skating show?

    She and Pelletier had lousy choreography and virtually no practice time. Battle of the Blades is a much more organized competition than Thin Ice (look at the titles). As the postings show, the participants are already at a training camp. There is organized training, coaching, choreography, costume design, etc. I think Elena would be great if she signed on.

    I'm just trying to figure out how last year's winners are going to get out of appearing on this year's show. They are going to have to make SOME kind of appearance, but with all the rumors around it's a little delicate wouldn't you say?.

    When I heard Craig on the fan 590 being interviewed about hockey back in May or June, he couldn't get off the topic of battle of the blades fast enough when he was asked about whether he would make an appearance.

    Has there been an announcement that they will?
    The show could always get around it by showing footage from last year and talking about e.g. how last year proved that hockey players could really skate and how much more excitement there will be this year, etc. etc. etc.

    Jamie and Craig are in the promos for the new season, and AFAIK, Jamie is a returning skater. I'm guessing we won't see Craig on the show, but otherwise looks like they are plowing ahead regardless of this.

    I actually think the divorce was "announced" when it was so that the headlines/gossip would hopefully die down by the time the show comes back on the air. By that time, they are likely hoping/assuming that people will be excited about the new skaters and hockey players and not bother with the "old" news of Jamie & Craig.
