Coming out of lurkdom here about Evan and the large probability he will not be in Boston. I have figured for months now that he has to keep his name out there and keep the media feeling he'll be in Boston and a good bet for the O team. They need him for all their Sochi hype as the reigning gold medalist. No way can he give any indication that he won't be competing for the O team. So it's all in the media and the promotion, not exactly the same but not so different either than when Kwan was seemingly going to compete in 2006 Torino. I never thought she'd make it (even though she wanted to) and was even more sure she wouldn't actually skate when her coach, Rafael, never showed up in Torino. Just my thoughts.
