Does it mean Margaglio still works with Zueva as well as Scali, or is Scali to replace Margaglio?
Italian article: http://www.neveitalia.it/sport/figur...-marina-zoueva
In a period in which bank holding retreats and births of new couples, something starts to move even on the front of the coaches.
The former skater, technical and choreographer Italian Massimo Scali, after three years of successful collaboration, will leave the team workout in Bloomfield Hills directed by Pasquale Camerlengo and moved to Canton where it operates Marina Zoueva.
The thirty-four Monterotondo, vice-European champion in 2009 and 2010 as well as world bronze in 2010 in tandem with Federica Faiella, will begin the new adventure from 1 June. Located in Canton, a resort town in Michigan as well as Bloomfield Hills, should find the Shibutani siblings, currently second U.S. couple, always arrives confirmation of the withdrawal of Davis / White.
It is rumored, but at the moment there is no confirmation of any kind in this regard that the Americans Hubbell / Donohue and Canadian Paul / Islam, couples in which Scali has mostly focused its attention in the last period can decide to follow him.
Moreover, it should be noted that with the coaching staff led by Marina Zoueva, which includes among many Oleg Epstein and Johnny Johns, collaborated last season Maurizio Margaglio.
Scali, stationed between 2011 and 2014 at the Detroit Skating Club, has worked closely with Elizabeth Swallow, Natalia Deller Annenko, Pasquale Camerlengo and Angelika Krylova with whom he followed last season many pairs of vertex among which are Remember Alexandra Aldridge / Daniel Eaton, Kaitlin Hawayek / Jean-Luc Baker, Madison Hubbell / Zachary Donohue, Alexandra Paul / Mitchell Islam, Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje and Danielle O'Brien / Gregory Merriman, who today announced his retirement from racing .
Interesting article. A week ago the following post was made :
So they knew a week ago Scali was leaving for Canton and in the same post wishes P&I to follow.
Tie that together with the article and and it seems reasonable to guess Marina got replacement teams V&M and D&W.
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
Fingers crossed Hawayek and Baker stay where they are, but I agree that the Shibs would do well training with H/D. They'd push each other like VM and DW.
Is Oleg Epstein still in Canton?
I guess this is how Zoueva is acquiring new teams. Going after a coach who has some strong teams who might go with him.

That is an extremely clever move by Zoueva. Maybe she realises her weaknesses after all?
Scali is going to bring in a fresh perspective and make her choreo less , I hope.

H/D have been progressing very well under Krylova and Camerlengo, and I'd like to see that continue but I actually wouldn't be surprised if they did follow Massimo.
This is a good career move for Scali and a good rebuilding move for Zoueva. But they really need to rebuild the roster of top teams in Canton, because there is only so much one can do with the Shibs.
Okay I will set the record straight. H&D are staying with Pasquale. They love him and are loyal to him and the team.
Massimo takes over Oleg's job at Canton. He went back to Chicago.
I doubt any team will leave DSC for Canton this year or next.
Pasquale and Massi remain good friends and he was told he will always be welcomed back with open arms.
Massi was looking to expand his horizons. Everyone is sad to see Massi leave DSC.
I wonder if DSC will try to find a replacement for Massimo, after all K/C have a lot of couples. I read that Fabian Bourzat will join Shpilband in Novi, maybe Tessa Virtue could be someone, who would be interested to join DSC? I think she would be a great choreographer.
Also, I saw Vladislav Vladimirovich Zhovnirski there at the rink with his team of Lina Fedorova/Maxim Miroshkin
Tessa and Scott have moved back to Canada, although I did see Tessa parking space sign still there. (I parked in it)
