    To be honest, I find Dom/Shab boring. And they overreact and overplay most of their moves, which is a slight sign of to be tasteless. That is what Linnichuk will correct on them, for sure.

    I really think, the real quality and technic is on the side of V/M. They are able to create positive emotions on the audience., plus their technic is brilliant.

    The other team, who can do that is Del/Schönf., but their technic is a questionmark....
    Also Khohl/Nov. can create some emotions, but their style is more satyric or charicaturistic, like Bestemianova/Bukin was before..

    Judges want to give an Olympic Gold for the Russians in the last 32 year (1976 was the 1st OG in Icedance). That is a fact. I talked about other things.

    I can't wait to see D/S' programs. I'm really interested to see what Linichuk has done with them, because I used to really like them (2006 at least...) and their programs the last two seasons just haven't done anything for them IMO.
    I guess I will have to wait for Skate A to see B/A programs. I am sure we will get some buzz then.

    Cup of China should be interesting both B/A and D/S will be competitng at this event.

    D/S did an interview in Russia recently. From what I could gather, their training is going well. Linichuk had them work on their basics a lot. The didn't want to talk about their programs, aside from the fact that they like them. They had nice things to say about B/A - that they're friendly people, they've been to their parties. When one team is working with Linichuk, the other works with Karponosov. They also talked about the adjustment from moving to the US from Russia.

    Perhaps one of our Russian speaking posters could post a more accurate translation.

    Thanks for sharing that information! I can't wait to see their programs, and how they've improved as a team since making the switch to Linichuk.
    I've seen some pictures of them recently and it looks like Maxim has lost a bit of weight; he looks leaner than he did last season.

    This actually is a very talented team-Oksana in particular is a wonderful ice dancer; she really has great technique. But like you said though, they have over done the way they move in the last two seasons, which does make their programs appear tasteless. I think that is a matter of choreography (which I think has been terrible the last two seasons for them) and coaching style. As reported in the article oleada talked about, Linichuk has had them working on basics a lot and I think that will bring a softer elegance to the way they move.

    As to Tessa and Scott, I really do like them. But they haven't had a lot of variety the last two seasons. However, I do especially like Scott; he's brilliant .
