    I didn't know who he was, but your description made it easy to pick him out in a line-up. He and Andrew Poje look remarkably similar.

    Same! I'd always been a fan of Madison, and Zach caught my eye while he was skating with Piper- When I saw the picture of them on icenetwork, it looked totally natural; they just look like they belong skating together. A very good looking team, and I can't wait for Lake Placid footage! (hopefully lol)

    I was a bigger fan of the Hubbells than I ever was of the Shibutanis (who I do actually like), so I can't wait to see how this new partnership works!

    I started a new thread in GSD: Article on new US dance team of Madison Hubbell & Zach Donohue

    ice-dance.com's Lake Placid IDC event site link is posted in the LPIDC thread in Kiss and Cry: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79078
    For those without Kiss and Cry access, here's the link: http://lpidc.ice-dance.com/2011/

    Agreed. Check out icenetwork's front page and you'll see another demonstration of just how much they resemble each other.

    They look great together ..best of luck to them.

    And yoo-hoo , Pasquale, Massimo , Anjelika..and maybe Shae.. how about a character show piece featuring those 2 tall dark men and 2 smashing blondes...sort of a comedy of mistaken identity a la Midsummer's Night Dream..They'd all look good in the costumes from the era of Frederick Ashton's "The Dream ' ( or costumes of any era ,for that matter )...I'll be waiting...

    Are Chock/Bates competing anywhere this summer/fall? I thought it was strange that they didn't show up at Lake Placid or Skate Detroit, even if that meant showing up with very rough programs. I'm assuming we won't see them on the GP.

    Chock/Bates are scheduled to debut their programs on the Onyx Challenge in Rochester, Michigan next week. Their free dance is set to a jazzy version of "Chopin's Prelude in e minor," according to the recent Icenetwork article on the Canton dance teams. Bates also mentioned in the article that they are hoping for a Senior B assignment and to be considered for the TBA spot at Skate America.

    I believe Chock/Bates are first in line for the newly opened spot at Skate Canada. Because she finished top 12 at Worlds last season, I don't think they need a minimum qualifying score together. They would automatically qualify under the new GP rules (although there are some contradictions within the rules, so I'm not 100% on that).

    Has Samuelson found a partner yet? I really liked her.

    I saw that Yang/Baker didn't skate at Lake Placid b/c of injury. Does anyone know if they are healthy again?

    Oddly, the rules are straightforward for Chock/Bates for Skate Canada, since Chock was top 12 last season, which covers all of the contradictions in timing (last season, last two seasons, no timeframe), and split couples don't need a minimum score as replacement skaters.

    The contradictions come in if they were given a TBD spot at Skate America, because the initial selections need a minimum score or top 75 placement last year, and the TBD spots held by a host may count as initial selections, but a replacement does not. If C/B were given a replacement spot at SA, then USFS would have to relinquish the TBD, since they can't have four teams from the US.

    So does this mean that C/B could end up with SA and SC?

    I have heard that Emily Samuelson will have a few try-outs this month. With whom, I have no idea, but I would love to know if anyone has heard/seen anything.

    Does anyone know if she stayed with her current coaches Igor/Marina or has she changed coaches?

    The way the GP announcement was written literally, comeback skaters (not using their one-time comeback guarantee of two) and split teams are first on the list, but only top 24 SB and WS with one get a second before any more spots are assigned. (They're already guaranteed one, and many already have a second in the initial selections.) C/B are probably first on the alternates list, unless there is a comeback surprise, but after they are assigned to SC to replace Mysliveckova/Novak, the next assignments go to the 11 top 24 SB and WS with one assignment.

    The way that USFS could get C/B two, assuming they get SC, is to either assign them to SA as a provisional TBD, like Hubbell/Donahue, using a Fall senior B to get a minimum score, or to use them as an alternate for one of the assigned USA spots, for which they don't need a minimum score.
