    I have watched their FD at least ten times and I am still not tired of it. I was afraid that their Olympic FD could never be as good as Je suis malade, but I am so happy that they created such a special FD for the Olympic season.

    The German Eurosport guys couldn't stop gushing about them.

    I love love love W/P. They've got two great programs and their journey to Sochi started off with a huge stamp of approval from the judges. I can't wait see how these programs will build throughout the season. Canadian Nationals is going to be one exciting event.

    I really can't see it happening, but I will be so unhappy if SC promotes G/P over W/V. IMHO they are not even in the same league.

    You mean W/P of course. But I don't think that it is even possible. After last season they must know that no matter how they promote G/P, they are not going to get such marks internationally - especially at the bigger competitions. Besides, Gilles doesn't have the Canadian passport/citizenship yet, and probably won't get it in time for Olympics. Even if she would get it, seems that Paul/Islam are better anyway, although they lack consistency.

    I think G/P are a big question mark regardless of citizenship. I think Paul is healed and they are training. It will be interesting to see how they look given their lack of training time in the off season. Are they scheduled to compete in China this week?

    Edited to add: G/P will be at NHK and Rostelecom Cup in Russia.

    My take is that G/P will be in a battle for 3rd this year with P/I. W/P are way ahead of them now in every way. If Poirier had stayed with Crone, it might be a different story, but that's not the reality. W/P stand a very good chance of medalling in Sochi with those programs if all goes well......here's hoping!!!!

    Prior to now, I've never been a huge fan of Kaitlyn & Andrew. I've appreciated their talents and liked some programs more than others, but wasn't completely sold on them. After Skate Canada, though, wow. They were amazing! They have really made a big leap forward with their skating this season. Both programs are absolutely wonderful, and they are skating them brilliantly already. Just a huge improvement over last season. As of now, I absolutely see them as podium contenders for Sochi.

    I've always thought Andrew was an outstanding skater but in the last couple of season Kaitlyn has improved SO much. She used to skate with slightly stiff knees but now has lovely soft knees, good edges and is way more confident. Great coaching obviously helps. LOVE this team - world champs very soon I'd say.

    Going to the Olympics was their initial dream. Having been so disappointed in 2010, they must be very excited now that it is within reach.

    Skate Canada has been a turning point for them, skating 2 beautiful and demanding programs already SO well !!
    I hope all will go well at CoR too, even if Bobrova at home will be unbeatable, anyway...
    I love this programs and I m really happy Pasquale and Angelika have worked well with them.
    Also Geoffrey Tyler sounds a special man ! Great team !

    I think they are well liked and appreciated in Russia. So I have great hopes for them there. Their programmes are sound, the judges obviously liked them, and their marks for their first outing were stellar in comparison to Bobrova's first comp. I really hope that being on home ice doesn't help the Russians get inflated scores, but only the scores they deserve

    I've watched both of their dances again and I'm really impressed .They look so polished and ready for so early in the season .They have an amazing chemistry as well and respect and they look like extremely hard workers.That was so evident after Kaitlyn's comeback so soon after injury last year I hope P/B win the bronze but if not I'll certainly be very happy for W/P to win and I'm sure they have a great future right at the top for sure .
