Man, if Chan continues in this direction, the doubters (including me) will have to eat a huge helping of crow. Chan, in the SP here, in the LP at Skate Canada, looks so comfortable and so relaxed. And I never gave Jeff Buttle enough credit for his choreography - the sequence from the steps before the triple lutz through to his footwork sequence is just exquisite. The use of pauses. The way Chan skids his blade sometimes. Just wonderful.
No one mentioned this, but this is Chan's personal best and a World record skate.
