    Domnina, Shabalin moving to Linichuk

    I honestly have no idea what my reaction is to this; I can't put just one name on it. Tanith and Ben have just gained new training mates and of all teams, it's Domnina and Shabalin.
    What a soap opera this off season is turning out to be! What's next?

    Wow--the last time Linichuk/Karponossov had two high-ranking teams was when Pasha/Platov and Krylova/Ovsiannikov trained together...

    Wow! I am of two minds on this. On the one hand, I am not sure Gorshkov can help Do&Sh improve as much as they need to, so I am glad they are making a switch. OTOH, I dislike Linichuk, and would have wanted them to choose a different coach.

    Ptichka - Do you dislike Linichuk on a personal level or a professional one? I always thought linichuk was one of the top Skate Dance coaches.

    Do you think they will like living in Jersey. So many Russian skaters seem to dislike it. That's not a healthy way to train.
