    The good news is that the judges won't give any scores this week - the choice is left with the votes from the fans.

    but, but, but I thought I read somewhere on here (FSU) that Shae Lynn was going to be a judge later this season. Isn't this the final week? and if so, then why Don and not SL? Just curious ...
    Could I be hopeful that Shae Lynn would replace JR this week?

    Article on Bryan Berard: Figure skates a battle for ex-NHLer Berard
    Former NHL star Bryan Berard has some advice for parents of young hockey players who want them to improve their game: put them in figure skates.

    “To be honest with you, if down the road I have a couple of boys, I would definitely get them involved early on and put them in figure skates,” said Berard, who was the No. 1 overall pick by the New York Islanders at the 1995 NHL entry draft. “You learn your edges a little bit more and become a much better skater. I think playing hockey at a young age ... if you can learn that it will really help.”

    No hope.

    I'm sure it's heresy to say as a Canadian, but I'm so very much done with Don Cherry, and had hoped he wouldn't appear on the show this year. I understand he brings in the viewers and thus he's on every year, but still.

    I would imagine the lack of a response to that statement means there is agreement to it. He dosen't bother me so much, likely because of his age. I would probably be less forgiving of a thirty year old making some of his comments.

    Now, who is going to win?

    Cherry's just a blowhard who I usually ignore.

    They didn't replay that bit at the very end of Tessa and David's routine. Was it truly a stumble?

    I think David was a bit off balance yes, but after the way they finished that program, I'm not surprised! She just flew!

    I've enjoyed Marie-France and Bryan so much through this series. I think I'll be voting for two teams tonight and I'll be happy if either wins.

    I've enjoyed all three performances so far tonight, but I think Tanith & Boyd's is my favourite so far. Tessa & David were fun to watch, but I felt like I was watching a series of tricks, not a program.

    Boyd is by far the best skater of the hockey players, but they just don't draw me in the way the other two teams do. Sandra obviously prefers them.

    I'm a bit stumped. I like all of them, for different reasons. I give Tessa a lot of credit for doing all she has, but if they win, it's three times running for pairs over dance. Any future dancers might not want to be involved if they think there's no chance. But I also like Marie France, and Boyd!

    And I'm the opposite. Tanith and Boyd draw me in more than the other 2, lol!

    I said a few weeks ago I didn't like MarieFrance and Bryan, but I changed my mind a couple of weeks ago.

    they're all good. they've all done a great job this season.

    I think I'm going to split my votes between the two dance teams and hope that one or the other of them will win.

    Jamie & Jessie are "in the house" cheering on David and she posted this photo: http://lockerz.com/s/155993559

    Living in Ottawa I also have a bit of a soft spot for the charity that Marie-France & Bryan are skating for.

    Loved David and Tessa's second number -- The Tragically Hip one where Tessa wore the dress. I think it was a wise decision to select two pieces that showed alternately the power and the tricks, and then the softness and elegance. What was really neat was to see how even more comfortable Tessa has become way up in the air. The girl has guts!
