I'm not sure what you mean by this.I actually fear the next 4 years for Canadian pairs, there’s clearly been no developed plan to help anyone out.
Agreed, they have the ingredients to be world top 5 with a bit more mileage. Already the top Canadian team and together months not years.Am amazed at people here trying to talk down James/Radford. They are potentially a really really good pair who have only been together six months.
Assuming J&R and MTM perform well enough to take the top 2 spots, any thoughts on where the twist might come from? In otherwords who do you see as potentially underperforming and who might rise up to surprise?Well as Skate America ends means another event closer to Nationals. Looking forward to see how this season ends. I’m thinking the way pairs is going we maybe in for a real twist!
W/M have looked like a total disaster during the GP before and have looked like a completely different team by the time Canadians rolled around, so who knows what might happen?I wonder if W&M's performance at Skate America will help mute the outcry about James and Radford.
I agree, but I believe the past couple years they have peaked at nationals, money and funding maybe the extra incentive to give that push for a great skate, but they don’t following through to the next events have not always the path. Having a tough skate in senior is one thing but being predictable and continuously not being prepared, I’m just expecting a little moreW/M have looked like a total disaster during the GP before and have looked like a completely different team by the time Canadians rolled around, so who knows what might happen?
Not really meaning the Olympic spots, my guess will be in M/M J/R. Though I don’t think MM have had great events this season to actually think they need to step it up to deserve the spot. And J/R I’m beginning to enjoy and seem to be the team that is most improving each time they preform. but song choices are maybe what’s not instantly gave me a WOWAssuming J&R and MTM perform well enough to take the top 2 spots, any thoughts on where the twist might come from?

This article indicates that Walsh was ill recently with a chest infection that required two rounds of antibiotics, and that is why the pair pulled out of the Autumn Classic. I look forward to seeing them improve through the season.We don't know if they are dealing with an injury, illness, or something else. I hate it when I read the "they should switch partners" oh so helpful suggestions. They have been a committed pair for a long time - I just so want them to do well.
What was wrong with McIntosh? Not much about her and Ben from coach Evans on Instagram for several months. If she was injured and it was prolonged that might explain why they are skating Junior this year when last year they posted 166 at Challenge after a short time together and looked to be ready to challenge some of the other senior pairs that have scores a little above that number or are still trying to get there like Andrew and Adcock. An injury might explain the all double double program at the Nextgen camp as well. Hopefully she’s recovered and they can get back on track.I hope we see some seniors at challenge, I hear MTM and W/M won’t be there. We may not be seeing many seniors in Regina
And if rumours are true B/D are done skating.
I hope Mcintosh has fully recovered.
It’s been a tough season for pairs.
Let’s see W/M do a personal best this week and the same for MTM in Russia.
