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!
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.
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.
So possible new pairs in Canada next season:
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:
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.
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).

Holy triple twists, Batman!
