    why do they keep flocking to Morozov, I can never understand his appeal
    For the amount of transitions and choreo that you do, you get amazingly high PCS with morozov programs (see Ilinykh and Katsalapov)

    Thanks Sylvia! I'm excited to see what Zhulin has done with Bobrova/Soloviev and Monko/Khaliavin.

    Same. I love some of the work he's done in the past in terms of technique and choreography.
    Navka and Kostomarov's 2004 OD remains one of my favorite OD's that I've seen.
    I love Pechalat and Bourzat's Chaplin and Circus routines.
    But he's also let his teams perform programs like Requiem for a Dream and the Zhivago Golden Waltz SD.
    But I think that, especially for Bobrova and Soloviev, he needs to get them level 4's on the footwork and other skills. Even with their flawed FD, they would have placed 5th in the FD if they had gotten level 4 on all their lifts and level 3 on their footwork sequences in worlds.

    At the first GP everything should be level 3 or above. By Euros or the GPF or as early as the second GP all technical elements should be at 4. D/W and V/M sometimes get level 3 step sequences but everyhting else is a 4. Only step sequence can be below 4 if they have improved. If they are getting 2's there was no improvement and it is the same problems just with different presentation.

    Agreed. They need to start off really strong and get even stronger. Also, they need to work on getting their GOE higher which may be something that happens over time, but is very necessary. They should not be getting 0's and negative GOE.
    I am kind of worried about them getting their levels with Zhulin as Pechalat and Bourzat were getting consistent 3's on their steps even as the season progressed. I hope he can figure out how to get the magic level 4's. (Or else I hope that the Russian fed pays Igor enough to get his magic COP step sequence secrets)
    I don't know if they will have a chance of medalling at worlds this season, but if they can get top 5, there will be a chance of getting a medal in Sochi. Otherwise there will be no chance IMO.
    I think that, weirdly, the YP will be a good pattern dance for them because it will not allow them to have any hint of being old fashioned.

    Yes. I hope that she can rediscover her love for skating and fix her health and mental issues.

    It is Nodari Kasey is talking about and not Lubov. Lubov still has quite a few problems to handle before she can start competing with her new partner.

    Oops... my bad
    It always confuses me when the Russian last names don't end with A or V.

    Full-time? So they are leaving Linichuk & Karponosov?

    Or will they just work with him on their programs during the Summer?

    Does it matter? Linichuk, Morozov, Pushkash, Guriero
    No matter in what mixture or order, I couldn't have been interested less.

    Oh, THAT would be fantastic!


    AFAIK, Guriero is a troublemaker; it would be interesting to see the dynamics in the group.
