Yeah, haven't even entered the off season and I'm already biting the bullet on this one. With all of the talk on skaters retiring, what skaters/discipline are you most looking forward to see developing over the next quad?
So far, the big ones for me are S&K in pairs and Jason Brown. S&K have this sort of quirky style and it would be interesting to see how they further develop as they (presumably) move up the ranks as Russia #1 after V&T retire. Jason, well, enough said.
In ice dance, as much as the (presumed) retirement of V&M, D&W and P&B will leave a void-in both meaning of the words I think there's some excitement now with no clear dominant team, at least as of now. Although I think I&K have the best potential to dominate, I don't see any team dominating the sport to the extent that V&M and D&W have since Vancouver.
But I'm looking forward to seeing I&K continue to develop, as well as C&L, W&P as well as teams further down in the rankings such as C&B, Z&G, H&D. I became a ShibSib fan over the Olympics, so I'm hoping that they can pull up become the U.S. #1.
