Yes, I was told the exact same thing by a friend of that pairs team. That was a decade ago. They actually won the Canadian title the year after the move! I also agree that it appears the move Sale & Pelletier made from Gauthier to Ullmark was less about a problem with Gauthier and more about the need to get Jamie back to her comfort zone in her home province in the year before the Olympics. Sale also had difficulty learning French in Quebec and so there were several reasons David agreed with her that she'd feel more comfortable back at her home base in Alberta.
