    One would think so, but he was never actually as consistent as he has sometimes been made out to be. For example, he was third at Nationals in 2009, the year he won his World title. If he finishes third at Nationals this year, he may very well be left off the Olympic Team, especially if the National Silver Medalist is Max Aaron or someone else who has an outstanding season on the Grand Prix.

    In those days USA had three slots for men and it was not necessary for Evan to waste his best performance at US Nationals. I mean the way Jeremy Abbott has done and not stood on the podium at Worlds or Olympics....

    Needless to say, any details on elements, jump content, etc.?

    A video surfacing wouldn't be surprising when you consider his name recognition. Someone was bound to be in the audience with a camera.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Is Evan now "THE SWAN!!!" ... that he once mocked Johnny Weir for being?

    Oh, no, but Evan's swan is a masculine Russian Tchaikovsky swan, whereas Johnny's was a namby-pamby Saint-Seans French swan.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Maybe it's just been a while since I've seen Evan skate, but there is something about his skating that looks smoother now. Esp the fw seq he was practicing looked less jerky to me and more strong and controlled. Of course, the million dollar question is how are his jumps.

    I was never a big Evan fan, but I find myself hoping his comeback is for real.

    I don't see the point in Evan going for Olys with no practice competitions and coming down to the wire. It's Sasha 2.0. You can't just show up the season of and expect to be amazing.

    A bit tired of skaters doing swan programs...

    Sasha didn't even have any competitions before she went to Nationals in 2010. Evan will be at the US Senior B in September and SA so he won't be rusty as Sasha was.

    indeed this was sad to see; if this skate (at nationals) would have been sashas first skate in the season at a grand prix, there would have been place for getting secure and lay down that kind of nerviness she was showing until nationals. evan is doing well in taking part in competitions before. although i believe it first, when he hits the ice

    So Evan is now a Russophil Swan, like Johnny?

    Evan started preparation much earlier than Sasha. I would say he is a lock unless injured.
