    New partnership - Deanna Stellato and Maxime Deschamps!

    No one said they were. But anyway, yeah you are right those teams are staying together.

    2019/20 ISU Grand Prix Assignments & Alternates thread

    Seriously. Her physical training is progressing for sure but what about her mental fitness? That we don't know and it's that part of her that probably needs the most care. I'm not sure throwing her into the spotlight with no competitive run throughs would exactly be chicken soup for the soul...

    2019-20 Canadian Men news & updates

    Well that's where my brain kind of started. But my perception is that the fields get stronger as the cycle progresses. And in Keegan/Nam, we have 2 skaters who have hit their plateaus. Plus, I think the chances of any Canadian skating lights out under that kind of pressure are significant. I...

    New partnership - Deanna Stellato and Maxime Deschamps!

    Deleting the longer detailed post that several of you saw (oh well), and upon reflection, I'm deciding to replace with just this: Because there are some potential issues with both federations on a potential partnership here, I think I'll leave it at this partnership is very likely to happen but...

    2019-20 Canadian Men news & updates

    I'm not really feeling Keegan's free skate although I'm glad it's not Chaplin. At least it's authentic to him but it feels like a throwback to a Sabovcik pro program. But if he can score well with it, then fine by me.

    2019-20 Canadian Men news & updates

    I'm not sure what to think with Canadian men this year. So far. Keegs and Nam are both serviceable but both will face separate challenges to try to make top 10 in Montreal. They will both be borderline in their potential to hit that threshold but for now I see them on the outside looking in. I...

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    I have mixed feelings about what I'm seeing from the pairs so far this summer. What I have been hoping to see are good programs and some signs of technical progress, even if there are flaws in execution at this point of the season. MT/M look like they have returned to comfortable programs for...

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    Holy crap! This was the only junior team I was excited about from last year (other than Zach Daleman plus whomever), in terms of seeing a path to good international ranking down the road. The big question marks were skating skills and growth, which is most interesting for this pair because of...

    Wait, what? What did I miss? What are they skating to?

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    Forget tall, I'm told he's freakishly strong. Apparently he did novice pairs so he's not completely new to this. All the elements are coming along great but with most new couples the twist develops last. The single is allegedly a rocket and now it's just building in rotations. Just a matter of...

    It's Davis. I believe they are training out of Oakville and I hear things are going quite well.

    Canadian Pairs 2019/2020 Season News and Updates

    I fell asleep to just about every pairs program I have seen so far. The exception is Matte/Ferland who even attempt music that you have to skate up to. A ways to go there but congrats for the ambition. There was one junior pairs team who didn't skate well but had a jazz/funk short that had me...

    Lubov Ilyushechkina and Charlie Bilodeau Cheer Thread

    I watched them not expecting much because they are a new team, it's early in the season and neither have competed in a few years. Even keeping that in mind, I was disappointed. It started with them on the warmup and I was like "hey that dress looks like her FEELING GOOD SP dress with Dylan in...

    Ashley Wagner reveals she was assaulted by John Coughlin

    Met him a few times regarding his app before Pyeongchang. I am/was working on a similar concept for business coaching that could eventually adapt for sports, so I was sharing insights to see if joining forces made sense. This was around then Russia --> OAR and I asked him what he felt about it...
