    He's sounding very sensible now and not trying to be eccentric. I have high hopes for him this season.

    In some respects he's sounding more sensible in terms of this season. But talking about representing another country, especially Russia, in 2014, because the USFSA would be "finished" with him by then might not go over well.

    Also the part about, he thought about going to Russia for coaching, but "my Federation said I need to stay in America."

    Interesting comments about coaching changes:

    When you’ve been with somebody for so long like I have been with Priscilla, and at that point you’re friends....When you want to work, and you want to be the best, you can’t have a friend. You need somebody to push you, somebody who can get you fired to skate.
    Here’s Johnny look-a-like, singer Mike Mironenko:

    I appreciate how careful Johnny is to make sure everybody understands he is not dumping Priscilla because he thinks she is a bad coach.

    Actually, he is not talking about representing Russia. He is just talking about representing some other country (not that I think he's serious either way)

    I believe Azerbaijan has an opening in the men's division.

    I'm excited to see his new programs. Anybody know the music he mentioned??

    Thoughts on the quad or should I say, quads -- I feel he needs them, in competition, for points but also for confidence and that little something to extra to say - "hey, I've got the total package, come get me if you can!!"

    I didn't really catch about representing Russia, but if that is his intentions, it's ok with me. Why do fans worry so much about nationalism? I think if he went to Russia some of the younger Russian boys would want to become lyrical and not Cossacks in style.

    However, Johnny is up againt a strong contingent of competitors from Europe, Canada, Asia, and maybe the US. Will Russian coaching bring him out any better? That is the bottom line for him to think about.
