    I don't care, she's so much better than some of the pair skaters we have, that her presence could help the other realize what's necessary for pairs skating...

    but it´s funny. this will be a bloody showdown for the sotchi spots anyway, her joining the 'party' would be so much fun.

    I honestly think that her coming back tomorrow with a good partner would give Russia a better chance at a medal in Ice Dance than any of the other three teams. Although I feel like Zhulin has a small chance with Bobrova and Soloviev, I don't really think they have enough time to get on the judges good side whereas Domnina would automatically get amazing PCS because of her rep.

    Honestly, I agree. Even with Kostomarov.

    Or Khoklova
    I'd rather Navka and Kostomarov come back and win gold in Sochi. But only if she wears her headband in both the SD and the FD.

    3rd place is still open
    though I think it ill be a battle for B/S and I/K for Russian No. 1

    I am interested on how I/K will be scored this season, this season
    will be their deciding factor where they will stand in Russian Team and on World rankings for Olympics season

    woukd be great if the russian fed would release her.

    and sad about mukhortova, all the divas are gone
    I miss Khokhlova and Mukhortova, such a waste of young competitive talent.

    I'm happy Lubov can compete next year.

    I am still heart broken over Russia losing Lubov. She is the closest thing to Katia Gordeeva. Even though Maisuradze could never be compared with Sergei, she could have found a good partner and a great coach (Moskvina) in Russia. Now it's hard to tell how she will do in the long run. I like Martiusheva-Rogonov, but I don't have much faith in them because although they are beautiful to watch, they have always struggled with their technical elements. Plus, she does not have the kind of personality on the ice that Lubov has.

    I am really looking forward to seeing Lubov & her new partner in some Yt clips.

    I think she may not be as successful in pairs (skating for France) as Marina was in ice dance because the Russian pairs field is usually deeper. The ice dance field was not strong after K&O had to retire.

    Of course right now she is lucky not to be an ice dancer because ID is dominated by NA teams.

    some good HD and close-up videos from test skates:

    Evgenia Pluschenko LP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7unAy2WY_s&feature=plcp

    Maxim Kovtun LP, he is still a bit inconsistent now but I think he might give
    Gachinski the headcase a run for his money in Russia in a few years

    Stepanova and Bukin are doing a Bolero FD. I was quite disappointed. I feel like this music is very difficult to do well and they don't have the maturity yet to pull it off.

    Although I have to say that their twizzles are excellent - very fast rotations.

    Does anyone know why Polina Agafonova did not get any JGP event? She was down for one and then she was replaced and did not get anything instead. At the moment she is down as substitute for the last one only, while Zaseeva who placed 7th is getting second one. Is Polina injured?

    What about Elena Ilinykh? I doubt she'll retire after Sochi.
    I thought of Bobrova but she seems way too nice to be a diva.

    I thought they were too fast to the music and just skated through it .Their twizzles are excellent so fast and in unison.I love this couple and can't wait till they turn senior .They look great on the ice good lines and flow .He reminds me of Shabalin with that haircut
    Russia are definately on the way back in dance with sooo many promising couples for the future .

    It's strange because their coaches usually give them good material. like last year's FD

    If none of the current senior ice dance teams place in the top 5 or 10 in Sochi I can't see any of getting any kind of support ever and would assume they would all retire but if they didn't they would not go to 2018.

    Bobrova and Soloviev are aiming for 2018
