    I don't think so... rumor mill is spinning out KMT/Reagan pairing (which would mean the end of Jones and Reagan?)

    Wow. If even half of these rumours are true, the pairs landscape in Canada will look quite different in the upcoming season.

    Wow that's a whole lot of changes in Canadian pairs skating.

    Moore-Towers and Reagan could work I guess, if Dylan is really done. And I don't blame him as he's nearing 30 and is probably ready for the next phase of his life.

    Awww I hope this isn't true! I would love to see what MT M could do this upcoming season!

    Why would they be finished? Kirsten & Dylan just said after the Olympics/Worlds that they were ready to continue on for another cycle and were motivated to go as far as 2018.

    Yeah, that's what I heard too, unless something's changed in the last month or so. I don't think Kirsten would skate with Beharry because he is her ex.

    I've heard Schultz retired and wouldn't move to Quebec.
    Purich/Wolf will train on Quebec.
    Marinaro is skating with MT.
    If you can learn anything from this it's that people say politically correct things when asked even though they know their intentions for the future are different. No way Dylan's body would last 4 more years so she's smart to start over now. Just don't think Marinaro is the right choice. Time will tell. Heard merv is skating with Donlan but that may still be just a rumour.

    Well you're right that skaters do often change their minds from what they say earlier in the season so I think we've all learned to not take every statement at face value, but in the case of Kirsten & Dylan, they sounded particularly confident that they would be continuing on next season.

    There are other pairs skaters Dylan's age still competing (Radford is only about a year younger and Savchenko is older), but there is a big age difference between him and Kirsten. So I suppose it's possible that if he's retiring and Kirsten wants to continue, the beginning of a new cycle would be the time to make a change.

    If that turns out to be the team, it's going to confuse some of the judges, and perhaps Rod Black, as well.

    A lot of swapped names to get used to!

    Well, from what I've heard (nothing official), but KMT is with Joshua Reagan, and I don't know about Dylan, but i suspect it has more to do with age and injuries after so many years in the sport that he's done.

    This doesn't seem possible. Moore Towers and Moscovitch seemed so committed to continuing.

    Ok, so there could be the following new pair teams for Canada next season:

    Moore-Towers/Marinaro
    or
    Moore-Towers/Reagan
    Purich/Wolfe
    Donlan/Tran

    Any others?

    Is this the same Drew Wolfe who used to do dance?

    Kirsten Moore-Towers could technically do two more Olympics if she wanted to. It'll be interesting to see who she ends up with.

    Does Donlan have any triple jumps?

    That's what I said above. We had heard they were very committed to coming back next season.

    But we do know from past experience that skaters change their minds. We've had far more surprising splits/retirements in the past. We'll have to wait and see whether this turns out to be true.

    And any relation to former pairs skater Sebastien Wolfe? Brother/cousin?

    Apparently, yes - Calgary Herald article from before 2013 Canadians: http://www2.canada.com/calgaryherald...9-097126c791e1

    ETA that Gretchen Donlan is in college at Boston University - the following article/video was published before her split from Andrew Speroff was known: http://www.bu.edu/today/2014/gretche...ng-and-premed/
    Donlan last competed internationally at Ice Challenge in Graz, Austria (November 23, 2013).
