Oh, I feel dirty for even posting this but I am serious!
I watched most of US Nationals on IceNetwork, television or youtube. I could point out Tom Z's skaters in the novice/junior ranks just by watching them, I didn't even need to read their information or wait until they got to the Kiss N' Cry. Most of his skaters are lacking in many areas but they seem to be able to pull off enough jumps to place decently. Many of his skaters are known for having awful programs or having a complete inability to show any flare. Their speed and ice coverage is sorely lacking. What gives? Why was he coaching 90% of the skaters at Nationals!? I mean, I guess he gets some credit because they had to beat out others to even get there. I just would not be sending my children to him after watching most of his skaters. Ironically, the skater he coaches who wins a National title this year did so with no help from him, apparently.
