Why is it desperation? Gauthier and Marcotte are some of the top pairs coaches in the world; they've produced great teams. There is no American team there now; the dollar is doing well vs the Canadian dollar. It's a solid option, with lots of good teams like KMT/M to train alongside without the pressure of direct internal competition.I can't see the Knierims deciding to work in Canada. That would be desperation. Maybe John Z, and if not then Chicago with Brubaker and Berton.
