    Piper and Paul attended the Minto Summer Skate today to watch other skaters from their training centre compete. They looked good together, even off ice in "civvies". Piper seemed to be quite bubbly.

    As they left this evening they said they'd be back tomorrow - the dance competition continues in the morning.

    @icedancecom tweeted Minto Senior/Junior SD scores last night and I've copied them into the thread for Minto news/results in the Kiss and Cry forum: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...52#post3250352

    I didn't post in the Worlds forum.

    But I mentioned that zillion of times elsewhere.

    (I really liked Crone/Poirer despite that. Still can't believe they split. Hopefully Piper and Paul can be at least half as successful)

    Whenever I watched Vanessa & Paul, it always felt like I was watching a brother and sister team!

    Vanessa may have some issues fans don't like, but she is an exceptional skater and so light on her feet. I hope she addresses her negative issues and finds a partner worthy of her talent.

    Agreed. She's too good to be sitting on the sidelines.

    Did you realize that by your sentence you implied that Paul was not worthy of her as a partner? At least that's the way it could be read, apparently, based on previous discussions.

    It probably should read......"NEW partner". I hope she finds one soon.

    I agree. They were a very exciting dance team and she is much too good to sit on the sidelines. I'm still disappointed about what happened.

    They skated tonight at the Scarborough "So you think you can judge" show at Thornhill arena. And this looks like a team that has been together for far longer than their announced "in the third week of their partnership". The look good together, both make a strong impression and have matching leg lines already. I think this pairing will go for more glamorous themes and styles than his previous team - certainly that's the case with the program they presented tonight.

    We were able to talk to them for a minute afterwards and wish them well for the future. Welcome to Canada, Piper.

    Fabulous news! I'm excited to see how they look. Maybe some of the buzz about the new teams (H/D and G/P) will make me miss the old ones less...

    It's disappointing that we won't get to see Paul on the Grand Prix this year.

    I will miss that.

    I was hoping he would skate with Alexe Gilles. The USFSA would definitely release her!

    That doesn't make sense, since Alexe Gilles isn't an ice dancer. and also too big for him.

    It wasn't supposed to make sense.

    Glad to hear that you had such a positive first impression of Gilles & Poirier as a team - thanks for sharing!

    "Gilles has a fresh-faced, playful quality that is a welcome contrast against some of the over the top kookiness that can be found in the international ice dance field."

    It was that she combined it with the word "kookiness" that got me
