So right now there are only two teams that skated in seniors in January still together:
Duhamel & Radford
Jones & Reagan, and that's a maybe as we haven't heard if they are still together
Skate Canada has its work cut out to get the senior pairs program going again. The next few months will be interesting to see who pops up at the big summer comps and how they are looking.
Paige posted a message on her Instagram today that sounds like a good-bye/thank-you:
http://instagram.com/paigehlawrenceThank you to #SkateSaskatchewan for organizing such a great Awards Banquet this weekend, and thank you for all of the support throughout the years!
This is good to hear. I hope she gives Tran and Schultz a good tryout too. I know neither are as tall as Marinaro ( Schultz an inch shorter and Tran 2 inches shorter I believe) but they are both much smoother skaters and I think technically stronger. I really don't think all P/M issues were her size.
I truly think KMT needs to go for a bigger guy, just like Savchenko. The main thing she was lacking with Moscovitch was "big" tricks like the Russians and Chinese. I don't think either Tran or Schultz would be an improvement in that department, so then why not just stick it out with Dylan?
For what it's worth, say a tryout with Tran took place in Toronto.
I don't think any of the available Cdn boys are an improvement over Moscovich to be honest. I guess all any of us can hope is that she pairs up with a partner who can get to his skill and performance level the quickest. I've always been told the older you get the harder it is to change your technique which is my concern about Marinaro. Anyway, I hope she ends up happy. I can't imagine any of these decisions have been easy for her to make.
Article on Seguin & Bilodeau from Bev Smith on the Skate Canada website:
That's sad that Charlie's dad dying in April.
Best of luck to them as they start the new season. Looking forward to seeing their new programs done by Duebril & Lauzon!
Sorry for her injury and his family loses. I look forward to what the new season brings for this perky team
So any updates on any new partnerships for Moore-Towers, Moscovitch, Tran, etc!!?
Its mid May so I'm guessing things need to be settled soon for the 14/15 season!
So. . . how about Yasmin Siraj for Rudi Swiegers? She's a lefty, she's tiny, she's very artistic. She'd need a release from USFS but that shouldn't be difficult.
BARK LESS. WAG MORE.
Oh, shucks. Retired, then, officially, or just most likely retired? I seem to remember she'd struggled with some injuries the last couple of years.
BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

Swiegers and Bell?
However, Swiegers has stated he is taking off the 2014-15 season.
I saw a picture on Facebook today of Matthew Penasse with Brittany Simpson in Colorado. Mind you, a picture of two people in a picture does not confirm a partnership but it does have me wondering! Does anyone have any info?
