    Agreed... he's a legend and we're lucky to still have him around. I mean imagine if we still had the other SLC skaters like B&S, Yags, A&P... it's extraordinary.

    With that said, I honestly do like his program, and I would be really impressed with him if he were some new skater on the scene.

    Aww, I think she is very pretty, and he looks hot with the new haircut.

    Poor guy, good for him for finishing strong! He got quite an ovation from the audience too! He looked kind of annoyed after he was done, but I don't blame him.

    Sotnikova is great. Loving the program, and Xtina's wailing doesn't bother me in the least. People bitch when skaters use the same old warhorses over and over again, and they bitch when they make an original choice. Even if you dislike the music, the program itself is well constructed, the jumps look great, and she is skating with more power and authority than last year. IMO this is tons better than that dreck she skated to last year.

    Loving both of Leonova's programs. Mad respect for her; she's not going anywhere. I really think the LP has potential to be really fierce. Totally rocked the side pony too.

    Has Volchkova's magic worn off? Korobeynikova's LP is really quite terrible even accounting for boot and health issues. And Biryukova was just a total hot mess; the timing on the jumps was just so far off. Hopefully both can pull it together somewhat before the GP.

    I don't know if I'd say Shelepen is necessarily regressing. The jump layout in her LP is kinda nuts: 3lutz-3loop, 2axel, 3loop, 2axel, 3sal-3toe, 3flip-2toe-2loop, 3lutz. That's a lot of content after the halfway point. And I kind of like the music, in a hot mess kind of way.

    I'm loving Makarova's LP thus far although I really would like to see the entire program first. I'd love to see her make the Euros/Worlds team just to see the impending board meltdown. Hair looks good too.

    Plushenko is a freaking legend. I really, really, really want to see him at Worlds. Program has potential.

    Absolutely, just the longevity of his career in the top echelons of men's skating is inspiring. Obviously the original report about "7 triple axels" was a mistranslation/mistake, BUT if there's any skater that could possibly pull off that physical feat, it's Plush.

    For what it's worth, I love that Plushy's footwork seem much better than before. I think it shows that he's really into working on footwork/step sequences.

    Biryukova and Polina K. are not in good form right now
    but Shershak looked in good shape at the test skates.

    Not really, Alexei did 3S as single jump, Nastya just did a double one. I hope they can keep their last season's free program. I really like it.

    what I mean when I said clean was landing the jumps on their feet and not their asses

    Yeah, and I definitely saw him doing 4 triple axels in one program a couple of years ago.

    I don't know. P/G looks better, more together to me despite being slower. They've gone far. I won't be surprised if they pass R/T if they progress. R/T's FD is so boring.
    Weaver and Poje's FD last year was a masterpiece and probably the best constructed dance of the year. It's unfair to compare. Anyway, I feel like this program has more potential than say The Feeling Begins. And lets see how the other medal contenders look.

    From in the SP to emo in the free, especially when she dies at the end Some mistakes by Max, even Tatiana's fall was his fault because she was sooooo freaking high in the air I think it through off her timing. That twist was sublime and that last lift was really good and should score well.

    Now, I can't wait to see what S/S have to offer this season. Is it GP time yet? Huh, is it?

    Oh, my, God.. It was breath-takingly beautiful!! I think they were totally soaked into the music and skating as one! This lp really makes up for that sp of theirs, wow.

    Zhan Bush is scheduled to compete at Nebelhorn and Finlandia but I haven't seen any test skate videos posted of him yet - are there any?

    In the roster posted in the Finlandia Trophy thread in Kiss and Cry, Julia Lipnitskaya, Zhan Bush, Bobrova/Soloviev, and the "Paradise" synchro team are the published Russian entries.

    Thumbs up Fabulous

    I just love Plushy´s new LP. The swan footwork is wonderful. This is going to be a masterpiece when it is finished. And of course, he rocks, as always.
