No doubt Samson is the most promising of all the "upcoming juniors (sigh)" in Canada. However, she is not yet of the same calibre as that of Hawker. Samson's jumps are bigger than Hawker's, but she is no where close to Hawker in consistency and basic skating skills.
I still don't understand why Skate Canada didn't wait for Quebec Summer Competitions and Nebelhorn to monitor Samson before putting her name in. Samson will be competing against the likes of Rochette, Phaneuf, Lacoste in Quebec and this will be a good indicator as to where she is at.
