    Chan's massive components score at CoR might be explained by that the international judges would be quite willing to give him even 96 or 97 points would he be landing all his planned content cleanly. Just like the judges would probably give Asada 69-70 points would she be able to do mostly triple jumps instead of mostly double and single jumps. Just a thought.

    I dunno. I bumped into posts writing that Chan has many supporters in Russia and that he won a poll at the Russian figure skating board on Who is the best male skater of the 2011-2012 season. Maybe things have changed since CoR of 2010?

    Chan's massive components score at CoR might be explained by that the judges can be very generous when they know he's THE favorite and it has no effect to final placements. That won't be the case if Chan skates before Hanyu. Takahashi's PCS (93 for FS, probably the highest ever) at WTT is a good comparison. But his PCS at NHK trophy was only 83.
