Morozov's an asshole, but he's very good at making his skaters feel confident, and improving basics.
Nothing will convince him that Chan is better than Daisuke. And yes, I've seen them both live.
I, too, like N/K's pink panther.
I don't think Yu-Na Kim is the be all and end of all of ladies' skating and I find that, overall, she made very little impact on the sport.
I think Mao is more artistic than Yu-Na. Her Wizard of Oz program made me cry.
I think the top ice dancing teams are a complete bore. Take off the music and anything D/W and V/M do looks exactly the same. Generic to the extreme.
